A delicious homemade creamy potato salad on a rustic picnic table.

It just hit me, that I only ever eat potato salad at our 4th of July cookout. I don’t know why I don’t think to make it, or request it more often! With mayo or without, what’s not to love about some good spuds smothered in flavor and herbs and spices. I’m always searching for recipes, and in my latest search for potato salad recipes I stumbled upon so many variations, I thought it would be fun to share with you.

So, are you a potato salad with mayonaise person? Or do you prefer your potatoes served more naturally? Either way, you are bound to find a potato salad recipe you can sink your teeth into here. It’s the perfect accompaniment to burgers, chicken and hot dogs on the grill, at your upcoming cookout. So let’s get cooking!

  • Potato Salad with Pesto

    You had me at pesto! Herby delicousness right here. Creator Louisa Clements shares that her secret ingredient is pickles!

  • Ina Garten's Potato Salad

    Ina is queen, whatever twist she has to a recipe, I’m all in because I know it will be fabulous! This recipe is somewhat traditional, using mayo. But the twist here is buttermilk and whole grain mustard.

  • Loaded Steakhouse Potato Salad

    Not for the weak of stomach, this one is loaded for flavor! The Happy Mustard Seed’s Karla Harmer brings on the bacon! Load it up with mayo, sour cream and cheese and you get the picture.

  • No Mayo Here- It's the Herbed Potato Salad

    Cookie and Kate (Cookie is the canine kitchen helper, Kate is the cook) have a really delcious looking no mayo recipe for your cookout side dish. This potato salad is drenched in herbs and spiked with lemon juice. I’m in! Oh, and it’s vegan, dairy-free, egg-free and gluten-free. 

    Herbed Potato Salad (no mayo!)

    I never truly loved a potato salad, until I made this one. This potato salad recipe is a riff on classic French potato salads, which contain no mayo and lots of herbs. I opted for lemon juice instead of vinegar for a super fresh-tasting salad.

  • "The Best Potato Salad" from All Recipes

    Load up on eggs, you’ll need them for this creamy creation, from  Also starring pickle relish, ranch dressing and pepperoncini (optional)! Pass me a fork, please.

    German potato salad was always a favorite of mine growing up. I found this gem of a recipe on

    I don’t know about you but I put spicy into just about everything, so I had to check this potato salad recipe out, from the Effortless Foodie, blogger Beth Sachs. Looks soooo good, right?
