Recipe Tips

For best results, use waxy, low-starch potatoes like Yellow Finn potatoes, red-skinned potatoes, or Yukon Gold potatoes. Leave the potato skins on if desired, but in that case, cook the potatoes whole for a longer time, then cool and dice.

Starchier softer potatoes like Russets don't hold their shape as well when cooked, and will result in a creamier (i.e. gooier) salad - which some of us like and some don't. I like Russets, but you do have to be very careful not to overcook them!
