A personal note: My husband lived in Santiago, Chile for two years and when he returned he had a handful of new favorite foods or dishes. One of his new-found loves was potato salad (it only took him 20 years to fall in love with an American classic- HA!) But the problem is, he loved Chilean Potato Salad, and it was quite different than the stuff you’d 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 different. 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!
