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.

I would have to say chicken salad!

I’m not a huge pickle fan. However, I love to take mini Gherkin pickles, batter dip them, and deep fry them. I serve them with a nice spicy dipping sauce.

I’d say potato salad or macaroni salad.
I love them in my pasta salad, which I make with a vinaigrette dressing.

Cornichons always make me think of my Mom’s recipe for Steak Tartare. Which I’m now craving!

Thanks for the great recipe!!! Would be HEAVEN to win that picnic basket! Would come in soooo handy!
your potato salad is very much like my grandma’s 100 year old recipe from Georgia..I love potato salad and just pinned your Mediterranean Greek one…looks delish..and, can’t wait to try!
Now, other than potato salad we use Cornichons chopped in another old timey southern recipe..that uses 3 beans and onion, celery and mayo..so good.that is just one way we use them!..another is my great grandpa’s tater sauce! And, other ways too.
