This simple potato salad recipe is my fave for two reasons: it’s extremely quick and easy to make, and it requires the basic of ingredients. This means I can make it with what I have in the kitchen, and whenever I crave a little potato salad. And of course, it can be refrigerated for up to 3 days and still taste delicious! Sometimes I add boiled beetroot if I have them available, but that’s absolutely optional. For the beetroot option, visit my other Beetroot-Potato Salad recipe for more information on the process and nutrition info!
