This is my mother's Hot Pink Potato Salad, or as she calls it "Russian Potato Salad," even though we're from El Salvador - strange, but there you go. I thought of calling it "Esperanza's Russian via El Salvador Hot Pink Potato Salad" - but whatever - just call it damn good! Its great for picnics, casual dinners, BBQs, or whenever. Really fun for potlucks as people will be shocked by the color and slightly apprehensive. Then they take one bite, and I swear this happens every time, a small swarm will ask for the recipe (even people who swear they hate beets). Kids seem to love it too - I think they assume it must be full of additives and food coloring and therefore infinitely cooler to eat than anything "homemade." Of course, it goes without saying that if you like your potato salad more oniony, more salty, less mayo, whatever, go for it! I hope you like it ... Enjoy!!!
