Potato Salad Recipes from Ina Garten, Martha Stewart & More – SheKnows

Ina Garten's Famous Beatty's Chocolate Cake Recipe - SheKnows

A summer backyard bash isn’t quite the same without a certain side dish: potato salad. Perfectly crispy on the outside, warm and tender on the inside, and topped with a luscious layer of creamy mayonnaise and mustard, potato salads typically contain hard-boiled eggs, celery, and sauce. And for some of our favorite chefs, it’s the perfect dish to dress up with herbs and citrus and, for Bobby Flay, goat cheese.


Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of the best versions of the classic potato salad, from Flay’s grilled potato salad that swaps the mayo for a dreamy vinaigrette dressing to Giada De Laurentiis’ delicious Italian twist on the American side dish. We’ve also added recipes from Ina Garten and Martha Stewart, both of which stayed pretty close to the tried and true recipe, but tweaked them tastefully to enhance the flavor.

Ina Garten’s Old Fashioned Potato Salad

Keep it classic with Garten’s old-fashioned potato salad recipe, which raises all the usual suspects: mayo, fresh dill, celery, red onion, and not one but two mustards. It’s sure to be a spicy, creamy hit with your guests this summer.

Pro tip from Garten? “It’s better to check the seasonings when it’s the temperature you’re going to eat it. So, [put it] in the fridge and pack it up later and take it to the beach,” she says in a delivery of Barefoot Contessa.

Bobby Flay’s Grilled Potato Salad With Goat Cheese

Flay’s latest take on a potato salad has two twists: it bids farewell to mayo and baths the potatoes instead in a citrus vinaigrette made up of lemon zest and juice, Dijon mustard, honey, salt, pepper, and olive oil. In addition, the potato salad plays a second surprise guest: goat cheese.

“What I always like to do is I like to dress the potatoes while they’re still warm… so it’s very important to keep the dressing ready [for when the potatoes come off the grill]”, says Flay in an episode of Bobby Flay’s BBQ Addiction.

Curtis Stone’s Favorite Potato Salad

Iron Chef Curtis Stone’s twist on classic potato salad features all of our favorite savory ingredients: bacon, shallots, capers, and yes, mayo. The key to this recipe is soaking the still warm potatoes with flavorful stock.

Martha Stewart’s All-American Potato Salad

The spread wouldn’t be complete without a Stewart dish, and you’d be failing to make her All-American Potato Salad this summer. It’s a wonderfully vibrant salad with hard-boiled eggs, celery, cornichons, and scallions.

“Potato salad is Americana in a bowl,” Stewart writes. “It will be the hero of your next picnic or block party.”

Giada De Laurentiis’ Crispy Italian Potato Salad

For an Italian twist, look no further than De Laurentiis’ product-forward potato salad recipe that includes fresh vegetables, fruits, and cheeses, including arugula, oranges, and gorgonzola, respectively. But the real star of the salad? The crispy roasted potatoes with both a nutty taste and a super crispy texture.

“A fresh new take on potato salad with arugula, orange wedges, gorgonzola and crispy potatoes. Your spring cookouts need this on the table!” writes De Laurentiis.
