Perked-up Potato Salad

Try something new and refreshing for 4th of July!  You can keep the basic ingredients for your traditional potato salad, but why not try a new dressing or substitute a few ingredients?
  • Mix half the amount of mayonnaise with sour cream or plain yogurt.
  • Use more colorful red potatoes with the skin on and substitute sliced green onions for regular.
  • Spice it up with a Southwestern kick. Mince fresh jalapeno and combine with cumin seeds, fresh lime zest and juice.
  • Add a Mediterranean twist using crumbled feta cheese, black olives, and fresh dill and mint. Use an olive oil and white-wine vinegar dressing.

The simpliest way to fill a ziplock bag is to place it inside a glass measuring cup and fold the bag over the edges. Fill it up and zip it with no mess.  This works beautifully when filling bags with liquids.

Zaycon Meat

Zaycon natural meats is the most amazing place to get meat deals and is one of my saving secrets!  They have 100% natural meats grown in the US.  — Never frozen,  processed without chemicals, additives or water!!   I exclusively purchased from Zaycon, over the last 4 yrs. Recently, there was a cool segment on Good Morning America sharing about the quality and savings of Zaycon.

If you want to order, go here to Zaycon Foods.   This is my referral link, thank you for using it. If you see an error when you click on it, just hit continue and it will take you to their site.  I’m not sure why an error is happening to some.

Chicken, fresh boneless skinless — $1.69/# (Walmart, $2.56/# frozen chicken)
Fresh Super Lean Ground Beef — $3.99/# (Walmart is $4.48/# this week)

This is a bulk purchase of meat and if it seems like too much for you, split it with a friend. I usually just package it for my family in 1# packages and use it up!

I order from Zaycon every time a deal comes along.  Check out how easy it is with my Zaycon pick-up video with Mr. Cameraman went.
