5 Great Potato Salads

Some delicous ways to prepare this favorite summer side dish.


What's a summer barbecue or picnic without a big bowl of luscious potato salad? Here are a variety of ways to prepare this summer classic, and none will disappoint.

1. Classic Potato Salad

Classic Potato Salad
Move beyond the mayonnaise potato salad from the deli counter and try this easy, homemade version. It's so much better when homemade. I've added some chopped dill pickle and a little white horseradish to the dressing to give it a flavor lift. One tip for the salad is to be sure to add the dressing while the potatoes are still warm so they absorb more flavor.

2. Red Potato Salad

This deli-style red potato salad recipe is delicious with all your favorite sandwiches, as well as alongside a spicy rack of ribs at the next cookout. Red potatoes work so well in potato salad recipes since they don't fall apart after being cooked.

3. Sweet Potato Salad

Sweet Potato Salad
This healthy sweet potato salad features a low-fat honey mustard dressing, and would make a great change of pace from more traditional potato salads.

4. Sour Cream Potato Salad

5. Potato, Bacon and Egg Salad
