Soak diced potatoes in water, drain and rinse. In a stock pot, combine rinsed potatoes with 2 quarts water and bring to a boil.
Reduce to simmer, cook 10-15 minutes, until potatoes are fork tender. Stir occasionally. For tips on boiling potatoes, visit our How to boil potatoes blog.
Drain and rinse potatoes, allowing potatoes to cool to room temperature.
Combine additional ingredients & mix with potatoes until evenly coated. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Salad will keep in refrigerator up to 3 days.
Prepare your potato salad the day before and refrigerate overnight. This allows potatoes to absorb more seasoning & dressing, boosting the overall flavor!
After boiling, drain potatoes well and allow steam to escape before mixing to prevent salad from getting watery.
Rule of Thumb
Quarter potatoes, rinse and add to cold water and allow them to come up to temperature gently. For the best texture possible, bring the water to a simmer and cook gently.
