June 30, 2011 by Leanne Vogel July 16, 2015The summer months bring back so many fantastic childhood memories. In the summer… You could catch me hiding with my dad under the dinning room table, chowing down on dipped Oreos in milk right before dinner. I could also be found doing flips in the lake with my little sister screaming “free willy!” [Weird? Maybe. But, if you were as obsessed with Free Willy as I was at 7, it will all make sense!] It was normal to see me waking up at 4am and dragging my dad to the boat for an early morning water ski session before everyone else woke up. Although it’s been a couple of years since I’ve attempted a cartwheel in the water, I can tell you that one of our summer activities has stuck around. Enjoying my dad’s potato salad. I’m not even kidding you when I say his salad is the best in the land. And lucky for you, he’s willing to share the mystery ingredient that makes it absolutely mouthwatering. The secret’s in the pickle juice… shhh Now, you’re probably thinking – pickle juice? What the hay? Trust me, this salad will change your life. I promise. Neighbors will offer to mow your lawn, your significant other will do the dishes, and you can count on your daily meditation being uninterrupted for at least a week… if there’s a batch of salad in the fridge! It does magical things, I tell you! I’ve added a bunch of veggies to his original recipe, cause let’s face it, that’s what I do!
