Worldview Everlasting — Real Ultimate Potato Salad

I’m sure most of you follow Pastor Fisk’s Worldview Everlasting and especially his Greek 2sdays, but he just came out with the newest concept — episode 1 of Cooking with Rev Fisk!

Many years ago when the kids were young and I couldn’t find good quality potato salad in the deli of the local grocery store, I made my own. I guarantee you that the recipe Pastor Fisk and family shows here is much better than even what I came up with, even though people raved about my recipe. I’m just waiting for the opportunity to try out his recipe; I’m sure many of you will feel the same.


About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord,, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

  1. Fascinating! Adding meat to a potato salad almost makes it a one dish dinner.

    Our midwest potato salad had onions. Here, when you go for BBQ, they put onion rings on the side, so you can put them on your brisket or your potato salad. [Commercial potato salad usually needs the help.]

  2. Meat and potato salad? I am going to have to give this recipe a try just to experience it. Being a “Seattle boy” I haven’t ever seen anything like this.

  3. OK – this is interesting recipe. The Scandinavian tint would require dill and a sweet mustard. I bet it tastes great though.

  4. This is not my grandmother’s potato salad! I am too “traditional” to accept this “contemporary” recipe for something that should not be changed. Why would one ever want to change what has worked so well for so long? For me there is only one way to make potato salad and this is just too extreme. (well maybe there is another way since I have also accepted German potato salad, but that’s it).

    RevFisk has a great understanding of theology, but here I believe he has gone too far. Don’t mess with my traditional tastes. But that’s just my opinion….

  5. I thought it was great. Putting meat into it was a neat twist and I’ll have to try it. Ditto on the onions, life does not exist w/o onions. The kids were adorable 🙂 I say kudos to him for doing it. Gave me quite a few smiles along the way.

  6. We haven’t heard what your Grandmother put into potato salad, Pr. Kusko.
    Care to elaborate?

    Pastor Kusko:

    Fusion is a terrific concept for cookong, but not so much for theology or worship. I gotta agree with other commentors on the onions, but cranberries and raisens? Now that’s a leap of faith. Christ said “Feed my sheep…” but potato salad? Hmmm…
