Whether you’re a fan of mayonnaise or not, leaving the condiment out of your potato salad is probably a wise thing to do in the summer heat. The salad mixture may not give you food poisoning after hours and hours of sitting outside, but mayonnaise and the heat are still an iffy combo, if you ask me.
