Labor Day Celebration with Potato Salad Recipe

RosieLargerToday, I’m celebrating Labor Day by sharing an iconic picture and my recipe for potato salad for your Labor Day picnic. In 1943 “The Saturday Evening Post” featured Norman Rockwell’s version of “Rosie the Riveter.” The cover features a female worker with her foot resting on Hitler’s Mein Kampf. This and the “We Can Do It” poster which were intended to recruit women into the workforce in traditional male jobs became iconic symbols of the women’s and workplace rights movement of the 1970s-1980s. Check out the “We Can Do It” poster at Worlds of the Imagination.

Rita Bay’s Potato Salad

Boil 8-10 medium potatoes with skin on until knife inserts easily.
Cool potatoes, then peel and cut into ½” pieces. Set aside.

For dressing for potatoes combine:
1 ½ Cup Hellman’s mayonnaise
1/3 Cup mustard
2/3 Cup sweet relish
4 boiled eggs, chopped fine
2 tsp black pepper

In blender combine and blend until pureed.
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/3 Cup onion, chopped
2 Tbl bell pepper, chopped (I use red)

Add above to dressing.
Pour mixture over potatoes and mix.
Salt and pepper to taste

Tomorrow, RELEASE DAY X 2 Rita Bay
