My mom makes a delicious classic potato salad that we usually enjoy once a year at a family summer BBQ. It’s loaded with potatoes, chopped eggs, onions, peppers, and more. Less enjoyable is the GOOD hour of kitchen grunt work to peel the potatoes, and chop everything up (while undoubtably sweating away in 30+ degree heat), which must be why we so rarely make it. This simple potato salad with fresh thyme is my summer BBQ go-to when I’m in the mood for a hearty, filling side that takes minimal effort. Lighter that your classic potato and egg version, fresh thyme is the star ingredient here, transforming this dish into serve-worthy side.
Another of my FAV easy sides for summer (or year round) entertaining—this sautéed sweet corn dish.
