"Through analytics we know that close to 70% of the visitors to our website during the summer months are looking for recipes or tips to help them make the perfect potato salad," explained Frank Muir, President/CEO of the IPC. "Our new recipe database, Ask Dr. Potato question and answer forum, and abundant how-to videos on our YouTube channel demonstrate how and why Idaho® potatoes are the ideal potato for summer salads."

Recipes
Hot, cold, traditional, or with a twist, there are so many different mouth-watering Idaho® potato salad recipes that you can serve a new one to your family every day during the summer months. It's hard to resist the traditional potato salad with mayonnaise and hardboiled eggs, but if you're looking for a light and nutrient-dense option, try the Asparagus and Idaho® Potato Quinoa Salad with Orange Parsley Dressing. Loaded with flavor, textures, and important vitamins and minerals, this dish can stand alone as a vegetarian meal or accompany your family's favorite protein. Did we mention it's gluten-free, too? 

Dr. Potato
There isn't a potato-related question that Dr. Potato can't answer. The number one trending question this season is, "How long does potato salad last in the refrigerator?" Here is Dr. Potato's response: "Did the salad get made up and then refrigerated right away, and you just have some left over? If this is the case then it should easily last 3-4 days. Was the salad used at a picnic and then placed back in the refrigerator? Then probably no more than the next day, if that. I usually don't recommend saving the salad after it has sat out in the heat at all."
