Using the Right Potato Is the Secret to a Great Potato Salad
It doesn't matter what you stir into the salad if the potatoes won't even hold together.
Grilled Baby Potato Salad
This modern take on potato salad forgoes mayo for a base of vinegar and olive oil. Justin Chapple also grills the potatoes to add a great smoky flavor before tossing them with quickly pickled red onions. But the best part is the playful salt-and-vinegar potato chip topping, which adds an addictive crunch. Slideshow: More Potato Salad Recipes
Red Potato Salads
Red potato salad can be prepared dozens of ways, most often by tossing chopped, boiled potatoes with a dressing made from mayonnaise or vinegar. We love to add mustard seeds, grated cauliflower, smoky bacon and peppery arugula to mix up this classic picnic side dish. Baby red potatoes are our favorite kind to use for potato salad--they're super tender, and you don't even have to peel them...just nick off any bad spots before boiling. Whether you prefer a classic mayonnaise dressing or want to try something a little lighter (try olive oil and herbs), these potato salad recipes are perfect for everything from backyard barbecues to family dinners.
