How to Make Creamy American Potato Salad
- Place potatoes in a steamer basket over simmering water. Steam until just tender. Allow to sit until cool enough to handle.
- Peel potatoes. Cut into 1/4 - 1/2 inch cubes. Place in large bowl. (You should almost be able to peel them with your finger nails.)
- Mix in the celery and onion. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour melted butter over top and gently toss to combine and separate the potato cubes.
- When the butter has been absorbed, add enough mayonnaise to coat the salad. Usually 2 - 3 cups works for me. Add chopped hard boiled eggs if using.
Chill at least 1 hour until ready to serve.
