Seeking best potato salad
As a parallel to my initial quest for good ready-made coleslaw I'd like to ask about potato salad. Seems some think coleslaw is not loved by all and potato salad would be a better side. Jury's still out. I'll reiterate the situation:
I'm hosting a party with Rudy's BBQ as the main event. However I don't care for their sides. Any opinion on the best ready-made potato salad in Austin?
I enjoy the Aunt Pearl's Potato Salad from Central Market (and HEBs w/ Central Market To Go sections).
Stuffed Cajun Market used to make my all-time favorite potato salad in town, but I haven't seen them carry it in a while.
Well, the best for me is Franklins. However, would I wait in line for their ps? Absolutely not.
Next, if you wish, however mayo-infused (which you were shying away), is County Line or Styles Switch or even Central Market. You can add a ton of mustard (plus a little ground mustard powder), pickles and it is on par with F's.
I was going to mention that as well, but it and I have not crossed paths for a couple years. I don't always check that display case, though.
It pretty easy to make a blue cheese and bacon potato salad at home. And you can score points with your cow-orkers for not buying something pre-made.
