With the next long weekend upon us… Not that I wouldn’t call it a long weekend being that the holiday falls mid-week. Regardless, our focus has now shifted to Canada Day Recipes. Great recipes that would be perfect to bring along to any barbecues you might be attending.

One of our favourite foods to enjoy is potato salad. I recently found a recipe that is much similar to the Great Canadian Potato Salad that my Mom would make during my childhood. The only difference was that she would omit the onion, celery seed and add radishes. We gave the recipe a try and it was nothing short of YUMazing!
