It is definately a classic! I am actually making it this weekend for our annual family fishing derby!
Tailgate menu ideas?

Layered Summer Salad ROCKS! It is my all time favourite thing to see at a BBQ or Potluck.
Another wonderful make-and-take is:
French-Country Potato Salad(I am giving this recipe from memory so there are few measurements.
mini white and red potatoes - about 25 of them
cooked and coarsely chopped bacon (a full pound)
roast the mini white and red potatoes (be sure to leave them a wee bit firm) - i like to do this on the BBQ but the oven works well too
once roasted(but not mushy), cut them all in quarters and place in a nice bowl (but if you are taking it somewhere a big tupperware with a lid is great), add the chopped bacon and chives
in a mixing bowl mix up 2/3 mayo and 1/3 dijon - enough that you think you can cover all the potatoes
gently mix in the dressing - if you haven't made enough you can always make a wee bit more
sprinkle with paprika
This is my FI's favourite - it really isn't healthy, but it is damn good - men are generally all over it - i mean, really.... potatoes and bacon

Potato salad in general is great, you can do so many things with it. Our "basic" potato salad is potato, mayo, mustard, celery, garlic powder, celery salt, black pepper, onion, and egg. But the fancier the better. Sometimes I make a good one with capers and olive oil in place of mayo...I bet we all have variations on potato salad!

I love the Cucumber, Onion and Tomato salad. Or a Caprese Salad with fresh mozzerella, basil, and capri tomatoes.
I also make a really good greenbean salad with the long french snap beans, sauteed shallots and garlic with julienne colored bell peppers in a champagne dressing.

You make a flavored cream cheese, spread it on first, add tomates and lettuce, then meats. Roll them up, put them in the fridge to chill and set up then slice them into big pinwheels!
