July 4 Recipes: Firecracker Potato Salad

If you’re throwing a July 4 party and feeding folks, you’ll need some great July 4 recipes. Well, have I got a recipe for you! This is a super recipe for spicy potato salad. It’s a little bit sweet, and it has a kick. It’s not “fiery,” but it does have some heat. Of course, you can adjust the seasonings and make the salad milder or even hotter.

2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper

Directions: Peel and cube the potatoes. Cook in salted water until tender but not soft. Drain well and refrigerate until cool.
