"It is always wise to make too much potato salad. Even if you are cooking for two, make enough for five." -Laurie Colwin
Sautéing the minced sausage both brings out the flavor and renders the fat so that it can become the vehicle for the dressing. This is a great technique for potato salad because the sausage brings so much flavor but also some saltiness. You can use almost any sausage and that will take your potato salad in a new direction - Italian, andouille or even a sweet maple flavor.
I look for sausages that contain about 350 milligrams of sodium in an ounce. They will add a lot of flavor, but as with this recipe, do sometimes need a bit of added salt to make the potato salad flavorful. If you find a sausage that you love but it is saltier, wait to add your salt at the end of the dish - you might not need as much.
