mashed potato salad 


🍜Warning: this is not a recipe per se, it’s a “how to” rescue in the kitchen.

So……have you ever wondered what to do when you boil the potatoes for a couple minutes too long when you’re making potato salad? They are a little too cooked to maintain their form as little wedges in a traditional potato salad, so why not mash them up?

Yep, you take the potatoes, mash them roughly with a hand potato masher, and add all your favorite potato salad ingredients. You don’t have to mash the rest of the ingredients just chop them a little more finely. 

Tastes like regular potato salad, only it’s mashed potato salad. Also instead of just using mayonnaise, add a little coarse brown or dijon mustard, a little sherry vinegar, and a tiny bit of olive oil and make a dressing of sorts. The taste is refreshingly different than just mayonnaise. Too that I generally add chopped fresh chives and dill and parsley.

Try it!

    • Red bliss and Yukon gold potatoes, celery, red onion, flat leaf parsley, dill, chives, mayonnaise, coarse Dijon mustard, olive oil, red wine vinegar and a little salt and pepper to taste. Sometimes I add crumbled bacon or chopped up hard boiled eggs too
