Buffalo Potato  Salad

Buffalo potato salad

Every once in awhile I come across something that I wonder why I never made myself. Case in point is the Buffalo Potato Salad sold in the deli by Dorothy Lane Markets of Dayton Ohio. I had grabbed some when I was in a hurry, late for dinner. And I needed a quick side. But OUCH! At somewhere around $9 per pound, something had to be done about the price gouging. Much cheaper to make this yourself.

This is wonderful served with a typical summer barbecue. Here it is shown with bbq chicken drummies, bbq boneless country style pork ribs, and oven roasted corn on the cob.

Dinner with Buffalo potato salad

I use a Crystal or Frank’s type hot sauce in this, not Tabasco. And generally you want to use the kind of hot sauce you prefer on your hot wings.

If you hold the Buffalo potato salad for long periods before serving, you may need a bit more hot sauce as it tends to tone down upon sitting. But it is easy to stir in a little more to taste.
