Potatoes just may be one of my favorite foods. I can’t think of a time when they aren’t appealing. I mean: french fried, baked, hashbrowned, mashed, au gratin, smothered in cheese, or stirred into potato salad? Pretty good all day, all the time.

Now, of course, some means of preparing potatoes are better for you than others. And some methods are better for summer than others.

That’s why I’ve taken it upon myself to share with you potatoes for all seasons.

The best way to enjoy potatoes in the summertime is, of course, stirred into a creamy, flavorful potato salad. 

Today I’m sharing one of my old-time, nineties, college throw back versions: Red Potato Salad with Whole Grain Mustard.

I first learned to make this red potato salad when I was in college, working in the UCen. Tubs of this red potato salad were sent out from the Central Kitchen to the satellite stores every morning. I know because I got to mix and dish the stuff.

It’s spicy, hearty, and full of flavor.

One of the great things about red potatoes is that the hold up really well. This salad won’t go mushy because those spuds hold their shape well. And they are the perfect foil for the whole grain mustard.

Make this Whole 30 appropriate by making your own mayonnaise.

One of the things that I love about red potato salad is that it’s so make-ahead. You can stir up a batch of salad today and it’s good for tomorrow night’s BBQ.

Here are some tools I use to make it EASY:
