Expert Tips

  • When preparing any salads that call for a homemade dressing, I suggest you prepare the dressing the day before. The dressing will become much more flavorful overnight.

More About This Recipe

  • Summer just would not be complete without a big bowl of savory potato salad. It can be served cold, warm or at room temperature, depending on how it is prepared. Because of my family, I tend to favor ingredients typical of Mexican cuisine. I do love the traditional potato salad, but I also love adding some spice to mine. If you have the time, I suggest preparing the potato salad the day before you serve it. The flavors will be much bolder!
