Potato Salad with Pimiento Dressing; Vitamins: Do you or don’t you? — 18 Comments

  1. What a great post!
    I take a slew of multiwhatsits too, or I rather buy in a fit of guilt, take them religiously for a week and then forgetall about them.
    By the way, I made your pasta with bacon and leeks and loved it. LOVED! Thanks for a great recipe.

  2. Interesting question about the vitamins. I don’t currently take any supplements but have been thinking about a fish oil pill once a day. I do eat fresh fish but probably not enough.

  3. I stopped taking vitamins sometime after moving to France, using the excuse that I eat way healthier now. I never did give my girls childrens vitamins, which astonished my USA family. But the girls seem pretty healthy to me.
    That potato salad looks delicious.

  4. I love pimientos but I never thought of making them with Potato Salad. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
    I take vitamins, if I remember to do so. If not, I’m not hung up about it. I try to eat healthy though. I think that’s what really counts. 🙂

  5. Wow – I honestly had no idea that pimientos were cherry peppers?! How silly is that?
    This salad sounds wonderful. I’ll have to try it out!!

  6. Dee, I have way too big of a stash… my anal little self would hate to turn out!
    Glad you liked the pasta ;-))
    Zoomie, I keep telling me it’s not necessary… But, apparently I don’t believe me!
    Lydia, it was great on salmon!
    Poppy Fields, I know, intellectually, you’re absolutly right… – good for you!
    Ning, maybe I can let go of them now… or maybe half…
    Tammy, it’s hard to recognize them in the olives….

  7. I take vitamins. I’ve been kind of rethinking them though. I do eat healthy, but your body only absorbs so much. So do I really want me body to absorb the lab created ones, or the ones in fresh food?

  8. I can’t answer all your questions, but I do know that the roasted red peppers in jars in the U.S. are red bell peppers. As for the vitamins, when I’m in my normal routine (when I’m working) I take a multi, a B-50 (50 mg. of all the B vitamins) calcium, and fish oil. For me it makes a lot of difference (so I can’t understand why I can’t seem to remember to take them at home!)
    I do love those little pimentos in jars! Sounds delicious.

  9. Pam, and I wonder if my body is now dependent on the lab ones…
    Kalyn, thanks… I’ve always wondered, when I post recipes using whole pimientos, if you can get them in the US

  10. Oh, and I use that tiny jar of diced pimientos for . . . “pimento” (as the Southerners spell it) cheese! I love that stuff.

  11. Lisa, Oh, I remember pimento cheese… Except I don’t remember how to make it… I’ll look on your blog ;-))

  12. I gave up vitamins after a doctor told me I was simply making expensive wee.
    Great recipe for potato salad. The dressing is just yummy.
    I was making the pimento cheese for ages and as it was so tasty, then I was asked politely if I could cut down and do something else for a while. I tend to have an obsessive compulsive personality. LOL

  13. I love pimiento. There’s ready made dressing that I used to buy and this reminds me of it. Sounds delicious.

  14. Wanda, I think I agree – about the expensive wee…. And about the OC personality… me too!
    Jude, and it’s so easy!

  15. Interesting question about the vitamins,but if you looking for a discount supplements you been thinking about a fish oil pill once a day. I do eat fresh fish but probably not enough.Anyway,thanks for the valuable information.
