Fair warning, the only problem with this Holiday Potato Salad is that it will not last long on the table!

This Holiday Potato Salad is a traditional dish in my household

This potato salad is a classic side dish in Latin America. I’m from  Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic. Growing up during the holidays, I always saw this potato salad on the table whether we spent it at home or visiting family. My grandmother would even add her own touch to it and add eggs. It’s very delicious! Now let me show you my favorite version of this Potato Salad and the reason for this is because it’s easy and fuss-free!

How to make Potato Salad

The first step is to peel and boil the potatoes and carrots for about 25 minutes over high temperatures until the veggies were soft. Add salt to the water this will help with the taste of the salad (about 1 teaspoon).

Holiday Potato saladTips and Tricks:

  • If preferred, boil eggs, slice them or mince it and add to the potato salad
  • Add apples, onions(red or white), my personal favorite
  • For a thicker texture, cut the vegetables into cubes.
  • For a creamy texture dice the vegetables. The smaller the size of the veggies the smoother your potato salad will be.
