Potato Salad Tact

pinehurst | Aug 12, 2011 05:51 AM

So I'm hosting a cookout after work today. Because I won't be home until 5:30 and the grill will be fired up at 6, when a friend asked to bring a side dish, I said YAY! She told me she'd bring the potato salad, and would drop it by the house before I left for work (that was an hour ago...yes, I'm chowing at work).

What I have is about 2 pounds of store bought potato salad...not the "German" style, but the kind that is potato, mayo (?) and mush.

I *need* to serve this tonight, and I don't want to offend the friend who brought it by dressing it up too much, do you know what I mean? I would like to cut it with green onions, chopped red bell pepper, celery, etc...but I'm afraid that that would say "your gift isn't up to my standards".

Is there a way to make it better without dissing the giver? Lots of black pepper? Some chives?

Thank you.
