One of the best potato salad recipes we’ve ever had and the best part? Everything can be prepped a day ahead, even the dressing. With busy summer schedules, sometimes the only way I can make it from one event to the next is by being able to prepare some of our dishes ahead of time. It really helps to lessen the stress of busy days and not to mention sometimes allowing a dish to sit overnight or longer really helps the flavors to meld together and makes everything much more satisfying.
