Entertaining tips:

  • You can prepare the salad a couple hours before the party but add olive oil and red wine vinegar when ready to serve. In my opinion, the salad is best served at room temperature but you can serve it cold if you prefer that.
  • Potato Mushroom Salad is a great choice for your next BBQ party; it is easy to make and can feed a large group of people.
