Potato salad has in recent years acquired the image of: potatoes with mayo and a boring budget salad. Which is a shame, because a good potato salad with your barbecue or summer dinner is everything! And that’s why we at the Culy editors delved into the potato salad archives to see how you can make that salad good, but above all better. Are you reading along?
5 x potato salad with a twist
1. Use brown butter
Completely à la Alison Roman – you know, she from the shallot pasta – it is to make your potato salad with brown butter. The butter replaces the mayonnaise and makes for a delicious, flavorful salad. Alison adds red onion, capers, mustard and apple cider , but you can of course adjust this to your taste. Would you like a more filled potato salad with your barbecue evening? Then you can omit the apple cider and capers and add toasted hazelnuts, mushrooms and a little bit of truffle mayo.
2. Use flavored mayo
Why would you still use ‘regular’ mayo these days? Grocery store shelves are full of variations on the divine sauce. Lemon, lime, truffle, peach: everything is possible. And it’s super easy to make yourself. Because if you buy a regular jar of mayo and add your favorite seasonings to it with the immersion blender, you already have an upgrade for your own potato salad. So beeped.
3. Try something other than mayo or yogurt
A potato salad is not successful until it contains mayo. We should have said that. Culy’s Martine loves her potato salad with whipped feta , but also makes it with chimichurri or muhamarra . The easy thing about a potato salad is that (almost) everything goes well with it. So also your favorite salsas and other spice mixtures.
4. Use other potatoes
Where we vary with the sauces, we also do the same with the potatoes. Normally you would probably only cook the potatoes and then mix them with your salad, but it is also very nice to bake the potatoes in the oven. Or use crushed lemon potatoes , sweet potatoes, new potatoes or baby potatoes with skin.
5. Think in a theme
A super easy way to pimp up your potato salad is to think in terms of a theme. Assume a country or cuisine. For example, in an Italian potato salad, use a mayonnaise of sun-dried tomatoes, lots of fresh basil and oregano, sweet tomatoes and good Parmesan. In a Greek you use Greek yogurt or whipped feta, red onion, olives and some capers and in a Mexican you use chimichurri , avocado, beans and a pepper.
You read: adding the classic ingredients of the country quickly turns your potato salad into a flavor bomb from here to Tokyo. For this we use Japanese mayo, a little soy sauce and pak choi…
