We don’t know which was the more surprising revelation today; That there is actually a U.S. Potato Board, or that that there are numerous ways to prepare that picnic staple, potato salad. We discovered the items in a release designed to push both the tubers and its promoters just in time for the Memorial Day holiday weekend, which many consider to be the unofficial start of the summer picnicking season. Offerings include Tuscan Potato Salad, Mexican Potato Salad, Farmer Fresh Potato Salad, Mediterranean Potato Salad and Florentine Potato Salad, among others. More than you ever wanted to know about potatoes can be found at Healthy Potato.com. See for yourself. What? It’s the Friday before Memorial Day; you’re not doing anything. Who you kiddin’?
