What You'll Need

  • 2 pounds new potatoes (or small round white potatoes, unpeeled)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 hard-cooked eggs (peeled, chopped)
  • 1 1/2 cups minced celery
  • 1/2 to 1 cup sweet onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet pickles (with some juice)
  • Salt to taste  
  • Pepper to taste
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • Garnish: dusting of paprika

How to Make It

  1. Scrub the potatoes and cut into 1-inch cubes. If very small, you might want to leave them whole.
  2. Place the potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water to about an inch above the potatoes. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and boil potatoes until tender.
  3. Drain and let cool.
  4. Combine potatoes with chopped egg, celery, onion, mayonnaise, mustard, sweet pickle, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Stir in a little parsley if using, then sprinkle paprika over top.
