Kitchen Tips

Prepping Potato Salad

Plan Ahead

Prepare your potato salad the day before and refrigerate overnight. This allows potatoes to absorb more seasoning & dressing, boosting the overall flavor!

Culinary Tip

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.
