How to Tailgate: The Best Salad Recipes
Some say it’s a good tailgating salad that makes the party, rounding out all the other great dishes, like chili, brats, pie, and desserts. We kind of agree. A good, old-fashioned German Potato Salad or a Creamy version that is just a little lighter on the mayo sound to us like essential dishes for true-blue tailgating.
In fact, you can’t just tote a potato salad or two. Your super tailgating party demands lots of salads, running from the familiar — a Coleslaw Deluxe with a classic albeit reduced-fat dressing— to the more exotic — an Asian Coleslaw with a peppery punch and even fewer calories.
You don’t want to end up saying “bean there, done that.” Any tailgating party worth it’s name deserves a great bean salad or two. We like this one called Three Cheers Bean Salad, which is healthy and really high in fiber. For a choice, though, check out our Three Bean Salad with Edamame, if you know fans with more modern taste.
Go ahead, make all of these great salads for your tailgating party. Remember, nothing gets wasted. There’s no leftovers quite like leftover potato salad — unless it’s leftover been salad!
