A Faster Way To Thaw Potato Salad - In Cold Water
Follow these steps if you’re short on time. The time to defrost depends on the amount of potato salad in the container or plastic bag.
A large bowl OR a sink
Fill a sink or bowl with cold water.
Place the container or bag of frozen potato salad into the cold water.
Replace the water with fresh cold water every 30 minutes. The potato salad should be defrosted after 1 hour, but it may need more time depending on how much is being defrosted.
Once the salad has defrosted, stir it a few times to re-incorporate the ingredients. Serve chilled.
