Tips to Make the Southern Potato Salad:

Tip 1. Boil the potatoes very well until they are adequately soft. Don’t make them too harsh.

Tip 3. You can add as much mayonnaise as you like, but keep a good balance between it and mustard.

Tip 4. In case you are using potatoes with very thin skin, you can leave them unpeeled if you wish.

Tip 5. Taste as you add the salt and pepper. You don’t want it to be too salty.
