We have been talking a considerable amount about summertime, and all the great food that comes along with it. As much as we love cooking here at home, it's also nice to let someone else do the footwork every once in a while. The potluck is a great way to get yourself stuffed by making only one dish, and also get out of doing the dishes. Win, win. However, something that is not great is showing up to that potluck with the final addition to a bakers dozen of potato salads. Don't be that guy. Make this instead.
Obviously, you could just make it and keep it all to yourself. Also, it doesn't necessarily need to be a side dish. Put it on some pasta. Put it on rice. Add some broth, make a soup. You get the idea.
