Steam Potatoes for Potato Salad for Better Texture
Boiling potatoes for potato salad is time-consuming and often waterlogs the potatoes. Here's a simple way to cook your potatoes for a better texture — no pot of boiling water required!
To eliminate the problem of water-logged potatoes in potato salad, steam them (don’t forget to keep an eye on the water level so the pan doesn’t burn dry). Once they’re cooked through, slice them into smaller pieces.
Add the vinegar and olive oil to the potatoes while they’re warm. Hot potatoes soak up flavors better than cool ones.
