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.
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.
Classic Potato Salad
Baby potatoes have a naturally sweet flavor and creamy texture that's delicious in this classic potato salad recipe. Even better, they hold their shape better than cut-up full-size potatoes, and there’s no need to peel them! A touch of scallions and parsley make this version especially addictive. Make it as a simple side for your next backyard bbq or summer picnic. More Recipes: Potato Salad Recipes, BBQ Side Dishes, Summer Sides
