Potato salad
I'm not a huge fan of potato salads, or potatoes really, for that matter. But what I do love is the combination of roasted sweet potatoes, caramelized onions, and tangy blue cheese. I'll use this combination in a frittata or omelette, in a salad, and of course alone, tossed with some oil and a drizzle of good vinegar, for a hearty alternative to tradtional picnic potato salads. In this recipe, I've lightened things up by adding halved fresh bing cherries for a juicier flavor. Click here to see 9 Summer-Ready Potato Salads.

Greek Yogurt Potato Salad
Tangy, thick Greek yogurt stands in for mayonnaise in this healthy potato salad. Green beans and tomatoes add extra fiber and a nice crunch and contrast in flavor, respectively. This may be trimmed down in calories, but it's certainly not trimmed down in flavor. See all potato salad recipes. Click here for more Greek yogurt recipes.

Simple Potato Salad
I hate mayo. Yes, it's true. It might be due to the fact that my sister used to make "turkey" sandwiches growing up that consisted of a thin layer of turkey and heaping mounds of mayonnaise. With just the slightest touch of her hand, mayo would ooze out of the sides only to be licked up by my sister in front of my horrified eyes.  So yes, it's probably psychological and, truth be told, I don't mind it if a little is slathered on a sandwich. But would I ever enjoy a mayonnaise-based potato salad? No way. So instead, I made this simple version to appease my dislike of mayonnaise and left out the hard-cooked eggs to appease my boyfriend's dislike of them. But, with fresh herbs and a lime dressing, this recipe is light, tasty, and still works as a great side dish. If you want to thicken it up a little, feel free to add some diced hard-cooked eggs to the mix.  Click here to see 9 Summer-Ready Potato Salads.

Joanne's German Potato Salad Recipe
German potato salad is one of those multiple personality dishes — everyone seems to define it differently.

German Potato Salad
German potato salad is a traditional potato side dish brought over to the United States by immigrants from southern Germany. Unlike American potato salad, which is made with a mayonnaise-based dressing, German potato salad dressing is made from a mixture of bacon drippings, vinegar and Dijon mustard. Red potatoes are traditionally used, but Yukon Gold potatoes work well, too.

Spicy Purple Potato Salad... Has Pickles!
As far as I'm concerned, the criteria for a good potato salad is for the potatoes to have textural character, for it to be tangy with plenty of mayo, and for there to be added elements that bring other textures and flavors, particularly heat. Oh, never peel them. There's absolutely nothing wrong with leaving the skin on.

Back then, the little hole-in-the-wall made a potato salad that was well-vinegared and included a much-underused ingredient, small-chopped pickles. I love the new place, but they don't seem to ever make their potato salad with pickles anymore. It's a shame. Chopped pickles add crunch, tang, and vinegar. This spicy purple potato salad goes one better by adding color, and increasing the flavor and textural components, using several types of onion and, for zip, jalapeño and chile pepper. Don't worry, the heat mostly disappears into the mayo... kind of. Click here to see 9 Summer-Ready Potato Salads.

Classic Potato Salad
For me, this potato salad spells summer. My mother has some serious potato salad juju, and for years I've been trying to make it exactly right. I figured out the two key things — the combo of celery and celery seed plus the right potato to egg ratio — and then added a twist of my own, using scallions instead of onions. Also, Hellman's mayonnaise is a must, here. There is no substitution. Click here to see 9 Summer-Ready Potato Salads.

Potato Salad
This is a quick, traditional potato salad that is so easy to make! White, red, or Yukon gold potatoes are all good choices for this recipe (Russet potatoes are not a great choice because they may fall apart). I don't peel my potato, but you can if you prefer. Please be sure to read the label to ensure your choice of Italian salad dressing is gluten-free.
