What is better potato salad or pasta salad?

I’ve been asking this question for a long time and the preference seems to be tied. People seem to love both the same. I even hit the internet to see which one people search for more. Guess what? It’s just about the same! Just as many people look for potato salad recipes as pasta salad recipes. Do you like one more than the other?

Personally, I like potatoes much more than pasta and therefore, I prefer potato salad over pasta salad. This one especially!

If you are a long time visitor to my site, you may have seem my Loaded Baked Potato Salad. It’s the most requested one of my (any salad) recipes for a potluck or holiday gathering. It’s great, it really is! Although, I would have to give preference to this Parmesan Dill Potato Salad now. Perhaps it’s because I have a slight addiction to dill weed. I absolutely love that herb and this potato salad has a strong dill flavor in it. It also has shaved Parmesan cheese, now how awesome is that?

For just a little more flavor, I added some lemon zest. Best decision ever! Citrus goes perfectly in this salad…trust me!

    Hello. I made this last night & am having friends taste test it with me today. I subbed out the green onion for 1/2 a baby red onion from my farmer’s market. I think the recipe is super tangy and yummy. I am going to write a review of it on my blog, so come by and check it out in a few days.
