Potato Salad – The World’s Best

Potato Salad

Whatcha doing for Memorial Day? I hope you are having a picnic so you can make my potato salad..The World’s BEST potato salad. Those are some pretty big shoes to fill. But I tell you, this potato salad makes me very very happy.

One of my sisters besties, Faith, once made some potato salad and it was rockin’. I asked her what she did and she said she boiled the potatoes with chicken bouillon cubes. What a great idea. Soooo, I stole her idea and made some tater salad of my own.

I will tell you this is pretty garlic-y, so if you do not like garlic, you might want to reduce the amount of garlic. I love it just the way it is. Also, you can make this a few days ahead of time, all of the flavors make happy food love and glorious things happen.

    I’ve never tried th chicken bullion, will give that a shot. While I do like garlic I think I’d halve the amount and grate it in on a microplane. I’d also add one onion grated on a box grater and four stalks of celery finely diced. That for me would be the World’s best. Can’t wait to give it a shot this weekend!

    I love your recipes and l-uh-uhve the chicken bouillon idea! Wondering about maybe chopping up some dill pickle and adding that in for a tiny bit of crunch and tang? Definitely going to try this one out!
