Potato salad is a favorite of mine. My mom makes the best potato salad and macaroni in the known galaxy, so my recipe won’t threaten hers. But mines faster than mom’s gourmet spud salad. Here’s my five minute potato salad. It’s delicious and easy to make.
Grabbing a big bag of affordable potatoes at the supermarket may be cheap, but potatoes are the salad foundation. I buy a ‘select’ bag of five. You pay a bit more for them, but they’re truly choice spuds. This recipe works with all potatoes, but I find the more select the spud, the tastier the salad. Select potatoes can be found right alongside standard ones in your store’s produce section.
Boiling or baking potatoes are fine, but it takes a long time. Plus, this recipe is geared to one serving. Just plop a spud in the microwave, and nuke for about 3.5 minutes. Most microwave ovens have a dedicated baked potato button.
I use Kraft Flavored Garlic & Herb mayonnaise. It’s tasty, and since it’s reduced fat, it’s really light on the calories, yet tastes great. You also save time because the garlic and herb make for a really flavorful potato salad taste. Of course, if you want traditional, use plain mayonnaise.
Slice up potato into small pieces.
Put into big bowl – bigger the better – easy for mixing
Add a tablespoon – or more – of mayonnaise.
Add salt, pepper and parsley to taste and garnish.
Potato salad is ready to eat! It’s a bit warm, but I like that. If your mayonnaise is really cold, it should give the potato salad a nice chill out. If you simply like potato salad very cold, place in fridge for an hour.
