|Take Your Potato Salad from Blah to AH-Mazing!|
The first step in your journey from blah to amazing is to taste the store potato salad. You need to know what flavors you are starting with. When buying from the deli counter ask for a taste before you buy. How does it taste? Does it need a little more salt and fresh ground pepper? Consider a little celery seed or some fresh dill. Both add wonderful flavor to a potato salad.
Next, you'll want some add-in ingredients. Here is my standard recipe for doctoring up a store-bought potato salad.

- 1-quart store-bought potato salad
- 1 stalk celery with leaves, finely chopped
- 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
- 1-handful chopped fresh chives
- Salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
Taste the potato salad to know your starting point. Add the celery, onion and chives. Stir to combine. Taste and add salt and pepper. Cover and chill for at least an hour to allow the flavors to combine.
Isn't that easy? Remember it is important to taste the potato salad again before you serve it to make sure the flavors are what you want them to be. You can add a little more of whatever the potato salad needs before you serve it. Serve this kicked up store-bought potato salad proudly. You've made it your own in a semi-homemade kind of way. Your family and friends will love it.
