To get the best results, you need to choose what potatoes to use. Russet potatoes are a good choice because they have a more powdery texture. When they cook, you can see a more starchy texture that adds to the creaminess of the potato salad, just like mashed potatoes. Another option is the Yukon gold potatoes for a more buttery flavor. Another tasty kind is red potatoes but they’re a bit waxy in texture and less creamy. Aside from selecting which potatoes to use, most of the ingredients are probably in your pantry already.
