The Best Potato Salad Recipe

My husband lived in Santiago, Chile for two years and when he returned he had a handful of new favorite foods, including potato salad! (It only took him 20 years to fall in love with an American classic- HA!) But the problem he had once returning to the US is that he loved Chilean Potato Salad, and it was quite different from the stuff you find in the deli section at your local market.

The basic ingredients were the same- potatoes and mayonnaise- but Chilean mayonnaise comes in a bag and tastes totally different. In fact, most Potato Salad recipes are tangy or too sweet, maybe even a little bitter. My husband says THIS potato salad recipe is as close to the Chilean dish he has found… so I totally get bonus points when I make this!

Best of all, you don’t have to be Chilean to like this potato salad! I’ve made it so many times over the past 10 years and it always gets eaten up so fast!

You can certainly add your other favorite ingredients to this dish (relish, celery, bacon bits etc.) but the following recipe is delicious as is and it takes very little time to prepare!
