A potato salad, though it is named, is generally a side dish as it accompanies the main course. The dish comes in many variations, and is found in different parts of the world, such as, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Slovakia, Holland, Italy, Germany, Romania, Syria, France, and the United States.
The potato salad is often served along side barbecued food, roasts, hot dogs, fried chicken, hamburgers and cold sandwiches. No matter how the potato salad is made, it is considered a casual fare dish, as it is part of the menu at picnics, potlucks and other casual meals and events. It is even found in delicatessens and food bars.
It is easily made in large quantities, therefore popular among restaurant cooks and chefs, as it can be prepared in advance and refrigerated until needed, and requires ingredients that are inexpensive.
