- This Labor Day, you'll likely want your potato salad to be the best of the best.
- Celebrity chefs from Martha Stewart to Guy Fieri have their own recipes for potato salad.
- Ree Drummond and Joanna Gaines both add eggs to their potato salad.
Ree Drummond, also known as the Pioneer Woman, adds sweet pickles and hard-boiled eggs to her potato salad.
Drummond's recipe for "perfect" potato salad recommends using russet potatoes and cutting them into halves or thirds before boiling them. She also lightly mashes them to make the potatoes fluffy.
In addition to pickles, pickle juice, and hard-boiled eggs, she also adds mayonnaise, mustard, green onions, dill, and other seasonings.
Ina Garten's recipe for an old-fashioned potato salad uses fresh dill and "good mayonnaise."
To make a Barefoot Contessa-approved potato salad, you'll need small red potatoes, Dijon and whole-grain mustard, fresh dill, celery, and red onion. Garten also recommends boiling the potatoes until they're barely tender and then letting them steam in a colander under a kitchen towel until they're tender but firm.
Garten also recommends not serving the potato salad right away. Instead, she says to toss well, cover, and refrigerate the salad for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend.
Alton Brown adds garlic, apple cider vinegar, and sliced cornichons to his potato salad.
"Iron Chef" host Alton Brown uses red potatoes, garlic, cornichons, onions, and celery in his potato salad. Like Garten, he also recommends letting the potato salad sit for at least an hour before serving.

Bobby Flay's recipe for German potato salad uses bacon, apple cider vinegar, and two kinds of onions.
While the chef's recipe does have delicious ingredients, it won't be creamy like some potato salads you're used to. There's no mayonnaise in this recipe, only a light dressing made with apple cider vinegar and mustard.
