To this day I fondly remember the potato salads my mother would prepare for days at the beach. She made them with white potatoes, onions, lots of parsley, well-seasoned mayonnaise, and sometimes capers, olives or pieces of hot dog. I imagine she used whatever she had on hand to whip up a different salad, which for me was always the most delicious in the world.
Throughout the years I have tried so many salad recipes, adapting the ingredients depending on where I was in the world at the time and the products available and in-season. But in all actuality, potato salad is so basic it doesn’t require much garnish. All you need are some high-quality potatoes, fresh herbs, a good dressing and a magical touch of your favorite ingredients.
This is a very simple recipe, which you can modify to you and your family’s taste, and it can be served as a side at any number of different occasions.
Enjoy this quick and delicious recipe!
