My Favorite Potato Salad Variation

There are so many possibilities with potato salad. The only one I really can’t tolerate anymore is prepackaged, store-bought. Once you have made it at home, you really can’t go back.
One of my favorites is Red, White and Bleu Potato Salad. The main ingredient that really stands out is Bleu cheese which adds a certain wonderful richness to it. There are people who don’t like Bleu cheese but I’m not one of them!
When I make a plain potato salad I usually use Italian Parsley and different types of onion. I will only use Best Foods, sometimes Kraft mayo and it’s best to not overdo it with mayo.
My very favorite variety contains ingredients that a relative came up with years ago and I have recreated it and reworked a couple of things.

Cilantro-Red Onion Potato Salad
3 pounds red or golden potatoes, cut into chunks
1/3 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3/4 cup mayo or to taste
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

Boil potatoes until still somewhat firm but edges become soft, 15-20 minutes. Drain potatoes and run cold water over them for a minute or two. Meanwhile in a large bowl, mix all other ingredients. Pour potatoes into mixture and fold together with a rubber spatula until well combined. Refrigerate until serving.
