WHAT ARE THE BEST POTATOES FOR POTATO SALAD
The best types of potatoes you should be using for potato salads are baby potatoes, Yukon gold, Yellow Fin, and red potatoes. These types of potatoes are what you call waxy potatoes that hold their form, texture, and shape when boiled and chopped.
HOW LONG TO BOIL POTATOES FOR POTATO SALAD
Baby potatoes or smaller sized potatoes should only need about 15-20 minutes of boiling. If you are using larger potatoes, you may cut them in half before boiling. It is best to boil the potatoes with the skin on and then once cooled, you may either peel the skin off or chop with skin on. To check if potatoes are done, you can use a fork to test by making sure the fork easily goes through the potato.
IS POTATO SALAD GLUTEN FREE
Potatoes are naturally gluten-free. All ingredients used in making this Healthy potato salad are gluten-free. If you are making your potato salad using mayonnaise, make sure you are using a gluten-free mayo to ensure that your potato salad is gluten-free.
CAN YOU FREEZE POTATO SALAD
Potato salads do not freeze well especially if they are made with mayonnaise or contain eggs and dairies like sour cream and yogurt. We do not recommend you freeze this healthy potato salad because it has cucumbers, eggs, and radishes that don’t freeze well. Once thawed, the consistency will not be the same and comes out soggy. You will also lose the great taste and crunch of the potato salad after it is thawed. But if you must freeze any leftover potato salad, know what to expect. Place in a Ziploc bag and remove all the air before closing and storing it for up to 2 months.
HOW LONG DOES POTATO SALAD LAST
Store Potato Salads in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Potato salads are enjoyed cold and do not need to be reheated. Remove and serve when ready to eat. If it gets watered down a bit, you may add some more yogurt with salt and pepper.
