  • Best served hot or warm
  • Always place your potatoes in cold water, before bringing to boil. If not, the outsides will cook immediately and the insides may take longer to cook, leading to some hard and soft pieces
  • Adding salt to the water before boiling the potatoes, will flavor the potatoes inside out
  • Make the dressing while you boil the potatoes that allow the onions and seasonings to steep the flavors.
