This Easy Picnic Potato Salad recipe makes your classic American potato salad that is perfect to take to a picnic or potluck this summer.
This week has been potato salad week. Since I have made some unique potato salad recipes, such as Greek Potato Salad and Texas Barbecue Loaded Baked Potato Salad, I thought it would be a good idea to go back to the classic traditional potato salad that is perfect for a 4th of July picnic or party.
This Easy Picnic Potato Salad is a simple yet flavorful version of the classic potato salad because it uses fewer yet quality ingredients, such as Maille® Cornichons (mini gherkin pickles) that add an extra tart bite, and skips the hard boiled eggs, which makes the potato salad even easier.
In addition, it includes a quality dijon mustard in addition to mayonnaise for extra flavor. I recommend Maille Dijon Mustard.
After you make the potato salad be sure to let it sit in the fridge for a few hours to enhance the flavor.
