Summer is ending and with that comes the time of year when people try to get in the last summer picnics.  We were in Northern Michigan last week attending a BBQ at my brother in-law’s place and asked to bring a dish.  It had been awhile since I’ve made a potato salad, but there was something so good sounding when thinking about a fresh made potato salad.

I found some Tarragon at the local Farmer’s Market in Northport, Michigan.  There were some fresh shallots for sale too.

One of the great things about potato salad is how easy and versatile of a dish it is.  I’m not a fan of potato salads with egg whites, but if you are you can add some chopped egg whites to this.  Also feel free to add other vegetables like celery or carrots.

Tarragon Potato Salad
Serves 6-8

3 lbs white or red potatoes, cubed into bite-sized pieces
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 large shallot, minced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh Tarragon
Salt & pepper to taste

Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 10-12 minutes until cooked, but still firm not mushy. Drain and set aside.

Broccoli Quinoa Casserole

I love a good casserole.  Unlike the casseroles of my 1970-80s childhood, casseroles are far better than the tuna and enchilada casseroles of the past.  Take for example this delicious combination using fresh broccoli and quinoa.

The dish also uses shredded cheddar cheese and just a little amount of milk and mayo which leaves a dish that focuses the flavor mostly on the broccoli, and that’s a good thing.

We enjoyed it with a simple side salad for a complete meal.  This works great if you’re into Meatless Mondays or Meatless whatever day.

Enjoy!
