Potato Salad w/skin on?

post #1 of 15

Do you ever leave the skin on your potatoes for potato salad?

I did the first time today (used red potatoes) and it looks strange. I made it for a picnic but I'm not sure I want to take it. It tastes fine.

We leave the skins on when we make potato salad, mashed potatoes, potato pancakes, hash browns, soup, or home-made french fries. In fact, off-hand, I can't think of any potato dish I make that doesn't include the skins.

It is liberating not to peel the potatoes. I started leaving my skins on a few years ago. However, this is the first time I've made potato salad with the skin.

I think I peeled potatoes because everyone else did.

It is just not the usual thing at picnics and it looks a little weird. I shouldn't worry about it since it tastes good.

I also leave the skins on when I cook potatoes!

In fact, we had company over for supper Saturday night, and I fixed potato salad, with red potatoes and left the skins on. I had more compliments on that potato salad.

I usually leave the skin on with red potatoes. Oldest dd has decided she won't eat them like that though so lately I peel them so she will eat it.

Around here , red potato salad always is made with the skins on.

We have " potato salad " with no skins and " red potato salad" with skins.

I don't think I skin red potatos for anything! We love them all kinds of ways around here
