Question: How do you take a nearly perfect summer classic dish, and make it even better? Answer: HEAT!

When I was a kid, my parents would throw the most epic July 4th parties. Along with the seven of us in total, what seemed like hundreds of loved ones would arrive in twos and fours – armed with coolers, freshly baked pies, and cold summer salads. We had a giant, kidney-shaped pool and people would put out their towels on our lawn. I don’t think you could see even an inch of green lawn – because the entire lawn was covered by colorful towels and happy people. The food was memorable!

After the sun went down, we would light sparklers and small fireworks. We would eat melting ice cream and then spoon up all the rainbow sprinkles that had sunk to the bottom of our “ice cream soup.” My dad would blast 38 Special out of the speakers he kept under our deck, and we’d all be swatting mosquitoes and enjoying shared stories. Sometimes, people would even go night-swimming. It was summer in a nutshell! Those are the memories I strive to make with my family.

Summer memories.

My sister loves macaroni salad, but potato salad was always my weakness. I remember the different variations of it over the years. I’d have the classic kind – with potatoes, mayo, and dill – and not much else – but then I remembered even more of the potato salads with a little (or a lot) something extra. I’m talking green crunch, and the potato skins still nearly intact.

Potato salad is a lifelong classic, but I’m all about taking things to the next level, and making a big mess doing so! Colman’s Mustard is no condiment – it’s a next-level-inducing active, HOT participant in your favorite summer dish. Whether you add a pinch to pasta or pizza, or to your potato salad, you are in for a treat. This recipe is your perfect summer party dish:

You may need to adjust your seasonings until you get your perfect taste. Start slow with your Colman’s Dry Mustard Powder and then work your way up to more. You won’t be disappointed!

I don’t know if this is the exact potato salad recipe of my youth, but it’s more like a combination of everything I ever loved about potato salad. Crunch. Creaminess. HEAT. And love – lots of love. What do you put in your potato salad?

Enjoy!

“Live a little!” My husband said, when I had a container of Colman’s Mustard in my hands. “Give this meal some HEAT!”

He’s right that I usually have to dip one, two, then three toes into the water before diving in. In this case, it was just a dab of mustard on my tongue, and soon enough I was shouting, “More heat, more heat!” while I added mustard to my spicy slaw.

Soon enough, we were messy in the kitchen – Cassidy at the helm of the grill with hot dogs and brats, and me at the sidelines – mixing spicy slaw in a large mixing bowl – taste-testing all the while. I have accomplished my first roller coaster and my first public speaking speech within the last few years. Was I ready for Colman’s Mustard? It turns out that I was! Colman’s Mustard is HOT. It’s not throat hot, but it’s nose hot. It’s sinus-clearing hot. That means it’s no mere condiment.

It’s a messy and wonderful star of every recipe show.

You don’t need a lot. The dry and prepared mustards are used in recipes to bring out flavor and heat. Add a pinch here and a sprinkle there. Add a dab here and a teaspoon-full there. No matter how you use it, it creates next-level food.

The thing is, slaw doesn’t usually have heat, does it? When you make it yourself, you make it next level. For me that means local vegetables, high-quality ingredients, and a Hot Mess remix with Colman’s Mustard. We’re all a hot mess sometimes!

And I happen to love it.

(Also, you can use the pickle juice from the accompanying pickles in the recipe and that equals YUM.)

What do you think? Easy enough, right? I was surprised by how much I could tolerate the heat, and then grow quite in love with it. This is the time of year for grilling. This is the time of year for fresh produce. And this is the time of year for stepping outside your comfort zone and tackling a recipe you’ve always wanted to try. Pair this with any grilled meat, or any grilled non-meat, or anything at all. Use Colman’s Mustard for your next get-together, sit back, and watch people love on it.
