Blend together and chill for a few hours before serving.
Jay’s Tasting Notes: “So this is pretty much potato salad made with Big Mac special sauce instead of mayonnaise?”
Margot’s Reply: “Yeah. I never realized that till now…no wonder I love it!”
The second recipe is one from my grandmother “Mimi” who would make this green pepper dip for special occasions. I honestly NEVER saw it or had it with anything other than green peppers for dipping, though I am sure it is tasty on other vegetables. I tried this recipe based on my mother’s recollection for years but never got it right. Recently I found the recipe card in my mother’s recipe box, in Mimi’s hand writing. Turns out my mother always left out the tobacco sauce and that the onions needed to be “finely” chopped. This time it came out perfect.
1 Cup Mayonnaise
1/3 Cup Chile Sauce
2 Tbsp Horseradish
1 Small Onion (fresh) chopped fine
1 tsp mustard
Dash Tabasco Sauce
Mix together and chill a few hours before serving. Serve with crisp green bell pepper strips.

A photo journal of sorts from the party can be found below. It was so nice to see many of my family members enjoying some laughs and good food.
