Old-Fashioned Potato Salad

Today's recipe is another awesome tried & true from Ina Garten, Old-Fashioned Potato Salad! Hands down, the best potato salad I've had to date. I give this recipe five stars! It's the perfect potato salad. Creamy. Fresh. Delicious. Simple to make, so good. 

The mayo, buttermilk, Dijon, whole grain mustard seed sauce, along with fresh dill and the crunch of the celery and red onion is perfection.

My sister whipped up this salad for a cookout during my visit to Alaska with my girls for spring break. Ever since making it the first time, this has been her go-to potato salad. She follows the recipe as directed, but likes to use a mixture of red and white small potatoes. 

If you are looking for a great potato salad, I highly recommend giving this one a try. Friends and family will be asking for the recipe! Also, be sure to use Ina's tip for cooking the potatoes - the tip for steaming them is awesome, the best tip for perfect potatoes.
