Your favorite party dip just became your new favorite side dish. This spinach artichoke potato salad is a must at all summer cook outs.
It’s almost Memorial Day! For me nostalgia demands grilled cheeseburgers and potato salad at the very least. What are your Memorial Day staples? I will always prefer my dad’s creamy potato salad over all others (again nostalgia) but obviously I can’t share the same recipe year after year so prepare yourself for a new variation that’s a worth addition to your cookout menu this weekend. Oh how I love coming up with menus for holidays and events!
Have I ever mentioned that I actually enjoy grocery shopping? I enjoy the whole process, from recipe creation, making the grocery list, crossing things off said list, and sometimes finding some new seasonal items before cashing out and bringing it all home for the main cooking event!.I might be weird, but that’s okay. As an added bonus, the grocery at which I frequent, Giant Eagle, has an awesome fuelperks+ program making it a one stop shop for all things summer.
While I didn’t earn enough fuelperks+ on this specific shopping trip to add on to the $0.03/gallon discount my rewards card automatically gives me at the GetGo gas station, I only need to spend $11 on my next trip to increase that discount to $0.20/gallon – every $50 spent equals $0.20 off – up to a free tank of gas! They also added new features allowing you to apply fuelperks+ to your grocery bill up to 20% off and you can earn at the pump too.

What things will you buy and/or activities will you do with your family because you saved with fuelperks+? As for me? I am looking forward to all our summer travels (and the discounted gas we will need to get there)! This weekend in fact we will be driving to our hometown of Rochester, NY for my bridal shower and part one of Bob’s bachelor party. Which brings me right back around to potato salad and its requirement on Memorial Day.
The base to this potato salad is pretty similar to my father’s if you can recognize that Greek yogurt is a good substitute for mayo and cream cheese for sour cream (albeit a bit thicker). After that however, it veers in a totally different direction with the addition of artichoke hearts, spinach, garlic, and Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. You read that correctly, I turned one of the most popular party dips into what is soon to be one of the most popular cookout side dishes!
