Why does oil come out of potato salad? Is it the type of mayo you use or is it because of the temperature of the potatoes?
If the mayo is added while the potatoes are still warm a lot of the oil in the mayo will be absorbed, but you probably will have to adjust to taste and add more. Cooling the potatoes then adding the mayo works best. The Kraft mayo ingredients list shows soybean oil first.

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.
