Microwavable Potato Salad Recipe

Travis Pratt

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.
