Here's a simple copycat recipe for KFC potato salad that's no-longer sold as a side dish at America's largest fast food chicken chain. Some of the skin is left on the potatoes in the real thing, so you don't have to peel yours too thoroughly. Just be sure to chop your potatoes into cubes that are approximately 1/2-inch thick, and then let the salad marinate for at least 4 hours so that the flavors can properly develop. If you let the salad chill overnight, it tastes even better.

    • Instructions
      1. Lightly peel the potatoes (you don't have to get all of the skin off) then chop them into bite-size pieces and boil in 6 cups of boiling, lightly-salted water for 7 to10 minutes.
      The potato chunks should be tender, yet slightly tough in the middle when done. Drain and rinse potatoes with cold water.

      2. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth.

      3. Pour the drained potatoes into a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the potatoes and mix until well combined.

      4. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours. Overnight is best.

      Makes 6 cups (about 8 servings).

Didn't have time to chill this for the full time, but even 2 hours in the fridge and this tasted great! Don't let one or two poor reviews turn you off this recipe. Try it for yourself, it really is very good!

This is the best potato salad ever and I take it to all our potlucks and barbecues and everyone really raves over it.
