"What I say is that, if a man really likes potatoes, he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow." -Winnie the Pooh, Famous bear
I prefer to use waxy red potatoes or Yukon Golds in my potato salads. They just hold together better in a salad than russets or Idaho potatoes. I am also a skin-on guy when it comes to my potato salad, and that is not for everyone.
This smoky potato salad is amazing and a perfect addition to your summer picnic repertoire. The sweetness of the potatoes and red peppers is perfectly balanced by the rich umami flavor from the paprika. I like to use a lot of coarse ground black pepper in this recipe, as it really ups the aromatic flavor of the dish.
