Leftover Potato Salad
I was wondering if leftover potato salad could be frozen to enjoy later. The recipe I have in mind is a molded salad made with lemon gelatin, prepared potato salad, green peppers and cucumbers. —E.M., West Windsor, Vermont
Unfortunately, you would probably be very disappointed freezing this potato salad—or most any other potato salad for that matter. Most of the ingredients in the salad do not freeze well. After freezing, potatoes can become water-logged and mealy, and mayonnaise will likely separate and become watery.
