This is the best potato salad we've ever eaten. The dressing has the perfect combination of velvety smoothness, luscious creaminess, and mild, fresh flavor. And the potatoes -- you must use red potatoes, boiled until tender. They become creamy and perfect and blend so well with the dressing.

This salad comes in second our rating. It's easier to make, because you cube the potatoes, then roast them with onions and garlic. We like to add green beans, cherry tomaotes, and sometimes chicken to this salad to make it hearty and perfect for dinner.

Well, who wouldn't like the flavors of Buffalo chicken wings in a potato salad? Blue cheese, hot sauce, and celery add flavor to frozen steak fries that are baked until tender yet crisp on the edges. This is one of my all-time favorite potato salads.
