Every performance on stage is not the same.  As a singer you experiment each night to bring out different effects or nuances trying out different approaches with the same music or character.  Believe it or not the same thing happens in the kitchen.
I have followed recepies, added or took away ingredients and experimented a lot until I came up with the perfect potato salad.  This is a real hit at every BBQ or summer party.


  1. 7-8 large potatoes – cooked in salt water, skin on then peeled and cut into cubes
If you want to get real fancy you can use 10-15 smaller potatoes of different color which will look positively radiant and enticing on your dinner table.
  1. ½ red onion – sliced and chopped into real tiny pieces
  2. 8-9 slices of smoked bacon (if you can, please get Hungarian, Romanian or Polish Deli cold cuts) – microwaved for 4-6 minutes until crispy then chopped into tiny pieces
  3. 1 large cup of home made mayonnaise or Hellman’s Real Mayo if all hell brakes loose and can’t make your home made version ….don’t break my heart L
  4. about 1 teaspoon of Sea salt or Vegeta, fresh black pepper, sweet Hungarian paprika – use your own judgment in condiments
  5. 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  6. ½ cup of scallion greens – tiny cut ups to decorate

Boil your potatoes in salty water, skin on, drain them, let them cool, peel them and cut them up in cubes.
Microwave or fry your bacon pieces until crispy let them cool off and chop them up in tiny morsels.
Chop up your red onion also in very tiny pieces.
Mix the 3 ingredients together: potatoes, onions and bacon, add your 1 cup of mayo and condiments plus lemon juice.  Mix them all together, sprinkle some paprika on top and refrigerate it covered for 2-3 hours.  When you’re ready to serve it, sprinkle some scallion greens on top and prepare for the complements of your life.

It’s a fantastic, delicious and NOT a curve friendly side dish but hey, we just live once.  It would be a shame not to experience flavors like this before check-out time J
