Expert French Potato Salad

My family has been making this French Potato Salad for as long as I can remember. We always make it for special occasions, like Easter and Thanksgiving. It’s a delicious side dish that always brings smiles to the table.

I remember when I was a kid, my mom would spend hours in the kitchen preparing this salad. She would use the freshest ingredients – potatoes, pickles, eggs, and herbs. She would then add in a special dressing made with olive oil, mustard, and vinegar.

The secret to this recipe? It’s all about the balance of flavors. The pickles add a nice tang, the eggs give a creamy texture, and the herbs bring it all together.

This French Potato Salad is the perfect side dish for any occasion. It’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

  • Try adding in some cooked bacon or ham for a more flavorful salad.
  • For a vegan option, omit the eggs and use a vegan mayonnaise.
  • For a spicier version, add in some chili flakes.
  • For a sweeter version, add in some diced apples.
