Potato salad is one of the most popular Memorial Day cookout foods, and everyone has their preferred recipe.

Many celebrity chefs have their own recipes for the classic summer dish, adding their own unique touches that make it totally their own. Guy Fieri, the highest-paid Food Network star who recently signed a three-year deal worth a whopping $100 million, grills his potatoes rather than boiling them, while the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, adds sweet pickles and hard-boiled eggs to her potato salad.

Here's how 10 celebrity chefs make their potato salad.

Ina Garten's recipe for an old-fashioned potato salad uses fresh dill and "good mayonnaise."

To make a Barefoot Contessa-approved potato salad, you'll need small red potatoes, Dijon and whole-grain mustard, fresh dill, celery, and red onion. Garten also recommends boiling the potatoes until they're barely tender and then letting them steam in a colander under a kitchen towel until they're tender but firm.

She also recommends not serving the potato salad right away. Instead, she says to toss it well, cover, and then refrigerate the salad for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend.

Alton Brown adds garlic, apple cider vinegar, and sliced cornichons to his potato salad.

In addition to pickles, pickle juice, and hard-boiled eggs, she also adds mayonnaise, mustard, green onions, dill, and other seasonings.
