How Do You Feel About Mayonnaise-Based Potato Salad?

Classic Potato Salad: Love It or Hate It?

I'm not afraid to admit I love a good potato salad, especially when paired with a burger or hot dog at a barbecue on a hot Summer day. As long as it's fresh from the fridge and has a generous sprinkle of ground black pepper, I'm perfectly happy eating a heaping bowl of potato salad. However, I know not everyone is a fan of the mayonnaise-based dish, and I'm wondering: how do you feel about it?

Mayo makes everything terrible.

I used to love it but I had some bad potato salad and my GI tract hasn't been the same.

Love -- but I try to stay away from eating it, because once I get started, I can't stop!

I like potatoes, and I like mayo (I confess!); however, I despise the two together. Yuck.

i loathe this stuff and all mayonnaise based salads/sides/garnishes, never mind the fact that i don't eat regular potatoes (only sweet potato etc), the same with betroot salad - as soon as the mayo is added, i won't eat it

If by "classic", you mean the overly creamy mayo-doused slop that's normally at barbecues, then the answer is "hate it". But I like cold potato salad made with a light viniagrette instead...it isn't as cloying. Plus it's safer to eat in the heat...not as much of a risk of food poisoning.

Same here -- I'm indifferent about it. I can take it or leave it, and generally, I leave it. I can't remember the last time I ate potato salad.

I love potato salad too. Partially because I love mayo and partially because my gram made it all the time for summer cookouts. She got the recipe from her mom. My gram passed away a few years ago, so it is a comfort food for me.

I loooooove potato salad. I'm not talking about a specific recipe, although I do have my favorites. I just enjoy that if you invited 12 different folks to prepare and bring their favorite recipe to a gathering, you will likely have 12 different potato salads on hand. And there is usually an interesting legacy behind each bowl of spud salad!

Undecided because I'm very picky with my potato salad. There can't be too much mayonnaise, must be well seasoned, no boiled eggs or olives, and there must be some sort of acid (vinegar, lemon, relish, mustard, ect) That being said, I wouldn't touch the potato salad in the picture.

"Undecided" because I neither hate or love it, it's just so so.

Agree about the mayo (not a mayo fan) but do love pot salad. On Best Foods Mayo site there's a Bobby Flay PS with jalapenos and green onions; which I made about a week ago - pretty freaking awesome if you ask my tastebuds. @ shalma - I "assume" the pink thingies are red bell peppers.

I voted "hate it" even though i looooove it! But as you mentioned it, there's mayonnaise in it. So yes to potato salad, but don't be too generous with the mayonnaise! Can somebody tell me what the little pink things on the picture are? thx
