Best way to boil Idaho® Potatoes

Q: What is the best way to boil potatoes when making potato salad?
A: Peel and cut the potatoes into large chunks and they will cook faster in boiling water without breaking down.  When you cook the potato whole it often means that the outside will be mushy while the center is not quite done.
