Cook's Illustrated Make-Ahead Potato Salad for a Crowd
50 mins (prep 30, cooking 20)
13 ingredients
22-24 servings
This is a very good potato salad from the folks at America's Test Kitchen. I must confess that I love dill pickles and prefer that flavor to sweet pickle relish. I wound up adding a couple dill pickles and some dill pickle juice to this recipe (just a personal preference) and quite a few more eggs. Here are the tips from Cook's Illustrated: If you only have celery salt available, use the same amount but omit the salt in the dressing. When testing potatoes for doneness taste a piece. If you overcook they will become mealy and break apart. The potatoes must be just warm or even fully cooled when you add the dressing. If you find the potato salad a little dry for your liking, add up to 2 tablespoons more mayonnaise. Serving size is estimated.
