I have never tackled potato salad because I felt that it was something that should be left to the veterans.
It just happens that I have reached an age in which mu mu’s seem pretty comfortable and that I need to have my own potato salad recipe.
I love elements of German, Colombian and Potato salad, so, like Dyson and his vacuum cleaners, I set out to invent, The Perfect Potato Salad.
I think that a great potato salad should make you want to get up at three in the morning, grab a fork and eat it straight out of the tupperware, perhaps with a few crumbled potato chips on top.
