Leaving the Skins on Potato Salad

Q:

Is there any reason the skins cannot be left on a potato when making potato salad?

A:

There’s no reason at all, so my advice is to leave the skins on. The skin on a potato adds a nice texture and flavor to the salad and it’s also the healthiest part. We have several potato salad recipes with the skins intact. This link shows off traditional, classics with a twist, even fried.
