How not have soggy or watery potato salad?
Chances are that an overly moist potato salad may originate from using lower solid potatoes such as yellow (Yukon) or red types. While both have excellent potato salad qualities, they are sometimes prone to having a higher moisture content. Try using a russet variety next time to compare and contrast, as these have consistently a higher solids/lower moisture content. Here is a link to more helpful hints for perfect potato salads.

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
