Can I make potato salad in advance?
Yes! You can prepare the salad 1-2 days in ahead. Keep the salad covered in the refrigerator until you're ready to serve it.
How long will potato salad keep in the refrigerator?
If your potato salad has been sitting out at room temperature (or in the hot summer weather at a picnic) for more than 2 hours, you should discard any leftovers.
Potato salad that has been kept properly chilled will stay fresh in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
How much potato salad for a crowd?
This recipe yields 6 cups of potato salad, or about 12 (1/2-cup) servings. If you need Southern Potato Salad for 25, I suggest that you double the recipe ingredients. To feed 100 people, multiply the recipe ingredients by 4.
