Red Potato Salad

 

Potato salad is an American picnic and potluck staple.  It’s often the first side dish to disappear at summer gatherings. This recipe is based on the one my mom always made when I was growing up. The ingredients are simple but delicious when combined. I recommend using homemade or high-quality mayonnaise. It makes all the difference. My favorite brand is Sir Kensington’s, which is made with avocado oil and cage-free eggs. To minimize time chopping, I boil the potatoes whole and break them apart with a potato masher once they’re cooked. I also like the way the ingredients meld together when the potatoes are prepared this way. Enjoy!
