If you make a favorite potato salad, you might want to consider entering it in this year’s Madera District Fair special contest, appropriately called Potato Salad Contest (sponsored by Cool Hand Luke’s Steakhouse).
For details, see the Exhibitors Handbook at www.maderafair.com/pdfs/2013/page_9-23_exhibithall .pdf. Entries are due by 6 p.m. Aug. 13.
Now get those potato peelers ready and head for the kitchen. Up for grabs is cash ($20, $15 and $10 for first, second and third) and some nice gift cards ($75 card for first place, $50 card for second and $25 card for third. Not bad!)
Bacon potato salad
I find that Yukon Gold, red or white potatoes work best...
