Easter Egg Potato Salad

Last week my friend Debi at Recipes for my Boys posted a blog about a Potato Salad that she came up with... Easter Egg Ricotta Lemon Basil Potato Salad! It is absolutely gorgeous and very tasty! I decided to try it for my Wednesday Night Supper crowd... I had to use the pantry items that I had, so I changed it up a little. I like Debi's recipe better, but here goes!

First, I made up the dye for the eggs...

Then I added the eggs... 
I used clear glasses so you could see them in the dye.

These turned pretty, but the yellow is a waste of time. 
I didn't think about it blending in with the salad, 
so I didn't have enough color!

Not so pretty ones...

I chopped up the eggs. 
They are pretty enough by themselves!

I added mayo, sour cream, a tiny bit of spicy mustard,
lemon, basil, garlic, sweet pickle cubes, and S&P.
I would have added the red, yellow and green 
bell peppers and sweet onion, but my crowd won't eat it!

The result... a big ole 20 lb bowl of
Easter Egg Potato Salad !

Everyone LOVED the pretty potato salad! 
Of course, I had several people make a joke 
about the potato salad that had "turned". (Gone bad)
Ha Ha Ha

Here's a link to Debi's Easter Egg Ricotta Lemon Basil Potato Salad ! It's oh so yummy!!!
