Do you know how to make potato salad? If not you’ll be surprised how simple it is. We also suggest our Beet Potato Salad, it’s beautiful and delicious! If you have a little fan of pink, they’ll devour it! Potato salad is a favorite of ours to bring to summer bbq parties or even enjoying when we’re grilling in our own home. I’m a huge potato fan – they’re so versatile!
First things first, make sure you have a designated cutting board for fruits, vegetables, poultry, meat and fish. It’s always good to use a quality knife when working with produce, or anything that needs slicing and dicing for that matter.
One thing I really like to do with potato salad is use less mayo whenever possible. I had a potato salad that is overly creamy and you can’t really taste anything but the creaminess of the mayo. We actually switched over to Just Mayo (plus it’s vegan!) and notice it has a much lighter flavor, bright and a little tangy. Instead of using a traditional white vinegar we use a raw apple cider vinegar.
Look how beautiful our red, white and “blue” purple potatoes look. Just chop up some red potatoes, yellow yukon potatoes and of course some purple potatoes. You can even do away with the yukon if you’d like since you have the white from the red potatoes. Not a fan of potato salad? Roast up your potatoes with a little fresh grated garlic, olive oil and herbs, perfecto!
