When making potato salad, there are a few things you will need. This includes potatoes, mayonnaise, and a couple of spices. Let’s start with potatoes. To start off you can go ahead and peel your potatoes. How many potatoes you will need will depend on how much potato salad you want to have. While you are peeling your potatoes, go ahead and fill a pot with some water and place it on the stove to boil. Once your water comes to a boil, add some salt and add in your potatoes. Allow your potatoes to boil for a while.

Remember to take a fork and check if your potatoes have softened. Once soft, remove your pot from the heat. Go ahead and strain your potatoes from the water. Now you should add them to a serving bowl. You can wait for your potatoes to cool down or you can head to the next step. Add mayonnaise to your potatoes. How much you add depends on how you would like your potato salad to taste. If you are happy with the amount of mayonnaise, go ahead and add some salt and pepper. Do note that how many spices you add depends on your taste. It is as easy as that.
