Reser's® America's Best Potato Salad Challenge

Do you have America's best potato salad? Reser's Fine Foods wants to know!

In 2012, Reser's first challenged the Kansas City Barbeque Society and cooks across the country to help them find America's best potato salad. Back by popular demand, and now in its third year, the competition is back for the 2014 season!

Reser's "America's Best Potato Salad Challenge" is a two-tiered competition that involves both competition BBQ teams (Competitor Series) at 5 selected KCBS events in an ancillary category competition, and 10 online recipe submission winners (Consumer Series) that will allow anyone in America to participate. Click here for the rules and regulations.

Competitor Series

Reser's will be awarding prize money to the top two finishers in the potato salad category at each of the 5 selected barbeque competitions. The winner at each event will receive $1000 and entry into the America's Best Potato Salad Challenge finals at the World Food Championships. To participate in the Reser's "America's Best Potato Salad Challenge" competitor series events, you must register here. To view the schedule: click here.
