The best potato salad I’ve ever had is creamy, with the perfect proportion of potatoes to dressing. It has great flavor, with bits of crunch from celery and bell peppers. And if you’re a fan of hard boiled eggs, they blend in well to this easy potato salad recipe. It truly is the best potato salad that I’ve ever had!
I cannot say enough about this potato salad recipe. It is quick, easy (no peeling!), and I could eat it by the gallon! Really…I don’t, but I could. You never know when those late night munchies hit!
Potato salad enthusiasts have distinct preferences of the ingredients that go into their salad. For example, a southern style potato salad recipe typically has mustard and hard boiled eggs in it.
This potato salad is completely ready to eat in 40 minutes, from start to finish. Any type of thin skinned potato works well in this recipe. I’ve made it with small red potatoes as well as Ruby Gold yellow potatoes. Use what you have and love. Due to the high amount of starch in them, I don’t recommend making it with russet potatoes.
Using russet potatoes will create pasty potato salad, which is definitely not the best potato salad.
