Summertime is hot, or maybe not

Summertime in South Carolina is hot. People cool off in swimming pools, at the beach or just sitting on a shady porch with a tall glass of iced tea — sweet, of course — to complain about the hot and humid weather. South Carolinians have always taken great pleasure grumbling about the temperature as it stretches past 90 degrees. You know, the days when your hair goes flat and makeup melts off your face.

People have become more and more obsessed about the weather. The

Potato Salad recipes are summer favorites

By Olivia Fowler
For the Courier
ofowler@thepccourier.com

We’re all familiar with traditional potato salad in the South, and it is delicious. But there are  many variations on this delicious dish.

The one thing all of these recipes have is common is the humble potato. There is probably an interpretation of this old friend that will be a welcome addition to your kitchen.

As for the potatoes, some are peeled, some are not. The dressings vary from creamy to light. Some are tangy and some are slightly sweet. And some are hot and others cold.

But they are all recognizable as our old favorite, potato salad. Enjoy.
