If you are entering the Reser's American Classics Summer Series potato salad competition, they talk about using different varieties of potatoes here: http://www.kcbs.us/resersseries.php?id=3

Thanks. I went and read those and also back tracked to the Royal app. Is there a potato catagory this year thats not Reser's Potato salad? I can't tell. It says there is a new catagory.

I was confused by this too, so I shot off an email to the Royal foks.

Although the answer wasn't that clear, it would appear that the Reeser's Potato Salad competition will be replacing the Potato Side Dish competition that has been held in prior years.

So if you mark the box for Potato side dish on the entry form, you are effectively signing up for the Potato Salad contest.

At least that's how I interpreted the response.

Thanks for the info...Thats too bad they are replacing the potato catagory insted of just adding another. They could have made that clearer on the form too..

The good news is that they reserve the right to use photos of your entry on Facebook, their corp Website, and anyplace else they want.

Oh, they get your recipe, too... as their own intellectual property.

Top 3 winners at each event must submit recipe to event. Recipes become property of Reser's Fine FoodsŪ.

I figured that nobody else was lining up to give me $700 for a staggeringly simple potato salad recipe, so it's all good. http://www.divaherself.com/funny/shiner.gif

Not like I'm making a model of Devil's Tower out of mashed potatoes or anything.

I wish! But we can't spend the entire month of October on the road!

I was referring to the recipe I sold to Reser's at Williams, AZ. :becky:

I participated in one of the Resers events eralier this year. It was my first side event and really didnt know what to expect. Needless to say, it didnt go very well. I never found much guidance as to how presentation should look so I just put it in a nice bowl, much the way I would at home. Not a good idea. :doh:

I read on their "tips" that don't be afraid to use different variety of potatoes. Sounds like a sweet potato is a potato to me.
