Hot tips from Food Network Kitchens' Katherine Alford:

When you're making potato salad, season the potatoes with salt and vinegar as soon as they're cooked but before dressing, like Food Network Magazine did in this Potato Salad With Peas; they soak up a ton of flavor when they're hot. You can serve the salad at room temperature or chill it for later; just be sure to take it out of the fridge about 30 minutes before eating.
