Recipe Tips:

  • Don’t boil the potatoes too long: Potatoes should be cooked until they are just fork-tender but still firm. Boiling potatoes too much will make them overly mushy.
  • Some potato salad recipes will also add a bit of sugar or honey to feed on the sweetness of the potatoes. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar or honey to the potato salad if desired.dill potato salad in a bowl
