How to Make Potato Salad

Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip mixed with boiled potatoes make a delicious potato salad recipe. You can use skin-on or peeled potatoes in a potato salad. The skin gives the potatoes a slightly different flavor and texture.

Optional additions include chopped celery, green onions, chopped green or red peppers, chopped fried bacon, red, or yellow onions, sweet pickle relish, horseradish sauce, and brown spicy mustard. A little salt and pepper is usually added as well. You might prefer to keep it simple with just the mayonnaise (or equivalent) and a little salt and pepper or you might want to add other flavors for added texture and taste.

Other Types of Potato Salad

Learning how to make potato salad is easy and you might like to experiment with international recipes for it, after you have mastered the basic one. German potato salad, for example, uses water, mustard, and cider vinegar as the dressing, rather than something creamy. Because German potato salad does not contain mayonnaise or eggs, you can take it on a picnic without worrying about keeping it cold.

How to Serve It

Because potato salad is primarily made of potatoes, which are a carbohydrate, it makes an unlikely filling for sandwiches. Save your egg salad recipe for those. Potato salad makes a great side dish for grilled steak, lamb, or chicken.

You can also serve it as part of a larger salad. There are plenty of potato salad recipes to choose from so if you decide to make a plain one with a little mustard, perhaps the next time you can try adding fried bacon instead, or perhaps some bell peppers.
