This potato salad is made with Yukon gold potatoes and grainy mustard, along with chopped onion and eggs. This is an excellent choice if you're looking for a good-tasting cookout or picnic potato salad.

Use a good quality whole grain mustard or a favorite gourmet mustard.

 

What You'll Need

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes (washed and cut in 1/2 to 1-inch cubes)
  • 1/2 cup celery (diced)
  • 4 hard-cooked eggs (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion (optional)
  • For the Dressing:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 2 teaspoons dill relish

How to Make It

  1. Put cubed potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Cover, reduce heat to medium and continue boiling for about 12 to 15 minutes until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain and cool completely.
  3. In a large bowl combine the cooled potatoes with the celery, chopped eggs, and onion.
  4. Combine 3/4 cup of the mayonnaise, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon of mustard, the dill relish, and pepper.
  1. Gently stir the mayonnaise mixture into the potato mixture. Add more of the remaining mayonnaise and mustard, as needed for flavor and texture.
  2. Chill until serving time.
