All-American Potato Salad
Most potato salads aren't what they could be-the potatoes are mushy or the vinaigrette is bland. Here's how to make perfect American-style potato salad every time.
Why This Recipe Works
For our flavorful All-American Potato Salad recipe, we decided to use firm-textured Yukon Gold potatoes because they hold their shape after cooking and won’t turn mushy in the salad. Our recipe benefited from the sweetness of an unexpected ingredient: pickle juice. We drizzled the still-warm potatoes with a mixture of pickle juice and mustard. The hot potatoes easily absorbed the acidic liquid and tasted seasoned through to the middle.
