You are really going to like this potato salad recipe. Hint . . . . . . It’s crawfish season and if you happen to have some left over boiled potatoes and corn on the cobb. Use those potatoes for you salad and mix in the corn cut of the cobb. The corn adds a whole new taste. Enjoy

In a medium saucepan, cook potatoes in salted water and crab boil until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from pan and dice. Place in a medium bowl and add tomatoes green onions, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss gently. Set aside.

Have a GREAT week and remember “Ya shoulda been here Yesterday”
