Try Something Totally Different
Dry cook the potato for a change in texture. Some of the allure of the classic potato salad comes from its creamy consistency, but a roasted, grilled, or even fried potato salad, where the tasty tasty spuds have crisp, caramelized browned spots, has it's own appeal.
Dress It Hot
The trick to infusing a potato salad with flavor is to dress it while the potatoes are hot, which is typical of a German-style potato salad. A simple vinaigrette or even a stand-alone vinegar cuts into fluffy spuds for a bright punch of flavor, and be sure to try other favorite salad dressings and preparations, such as a Caesar, as you expand your no-mayo potato salad repetoire.

Who Says It Has to Be All Potatoes?
Toss in untraditional mix-ins for a new angle on flavor. Lettuces and greens lighten a potato salad, and introducing other flavorful ingredients, such as bacon or pickled goods like capers and cornichons, will bring unique flavors to the mild, palate-pleasing canvas that is potato salad.
