WPVGA Launches Potato Salad Recipe Contest


This year, the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association (WPVGA) is challenging consumers to recreate a summer classic by hosting the Wisconsin Potato-Salad-with-Panache Recipe Contest.

"Thanks to our recipe contests, over the last couple of years, we've met a really creative group of people with culinary flare who create these amazing recipes,” said Dana Rady, WPVGA’s director of promotion, communication and consumer education. “They're a diverse group - from young professionals to retirees - who inspire others to think about food in new ways.”

“We'd like to see how creative people can be with an American summer favorite - potato salad,” Rady added. “Maybe it's a new take on cobb salad? Adding greens and seafood? A gluten-free salad? Who knows? We're excited to see what contest entrants come up with."

As an incredibly versatile vegetable, Wisconsin potatoes are low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free and are rich in fiber, potassium and calcium.

The winner of the Wisconsin Potato-Salad-with-Panache Recipe Contest will win a $500 gift card from Amazon.com. Second and third place winners will earn $150 and $100 gift cards, respectively, from Pampered Chef. Contest submissions will be shared on the Eat Wisconsin Potatoes Facebook page throughout the contest.

The WPVGA recipe contest began May 31, 2013; the deadline for recipe submission is June 20, 2013. Consumers will also be allowed to vote for their favorite Potato-Salad-with-Panache recipe from June 21 - June 27, 2013. Doing so automatically enters that person's name into a random drawing for a $100 gift card from Amazon.com.
