Pesto potato salad 

Looking for something different for a potato salad? Like pesto? Have extra roasted or baked potatoes? Then this is the dish for you….. Hopefully you saved some of that pesto you made during the summer and have it ready in the freezer. If not, I guess store bought would do and if you are so inclined make a batch of fresh and use it. (See previous post)  Baked, boiled, roasted potatoes, made just for this dish or leftovers. About two large potatoes per recipe. Mayo……how ever gooey you want it 1 tablespoons onion finely chopped 1 large stick celery finely chopped 1-2 hard boiled eggs A shake of garlic salt Pepper to taste 1/4 to 1/2 cup pesto Take the potatoes you are using and chopped them into cubes, kind of on the small side. If you need to cook them do so and cool. In a bowl mix everything and chill before serving.  As always we hope you enjoy.

Kinda thick if you like or thin, we like ours kinda thick. After all the fillets are coated ( smeared on the top in a better term) and pesto is used up squeeze lemon juice all over the fillets and sprinkle with salt. If …
