Serves 6 to 8
2 pounds red bliss or new potatoes
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 boiled eggs, cut into small dice
2 to 3 scallions, sliced thin (about 1/2 cup)
1 small celery stalk, cut into small dice (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup sweet pickle (not relish), cut into small dice
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
Place potatoes in a 5- to 6-quart pot; cover with water. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer, stirring once or twice to ensure even cooking, until a thin-bladed paring knife or a metal cake tester inserted into the potato can be removed with no resistance, 25 to 30 minutes for medium potatoes and 15 to 20 minutes for new potatoes. Drain, rinse under cold water, and drain again. While potatoes are still warm, cut them into 3/4-inch cubes with a serrated knife, and layer them in a medium bowl, sprinkling with the 2 tablespoons vinegar and salt and pepper as you go. Refrigerate potatoes while preparing remaining ingredients. Mix in remaining ingredients; refrigerate until ready to serve.

Lovely version of a classic salad. I’m so glad that you add hard-boiled eggs to yours – couldn’t have it any other way!

I love potato salad and your idea to add egg to it is awesome! Dijon is also key for me – I put it in just about everything I make. Nice pictures too!
This is a very good post for me. I think you should add more video and pictures because it helps visitors 🙂

I’M GOING TO GIVE IT A TRY FOR THE ” 4TH.” PICNIC.
LET YOU GALS KNOW HOW TURNED OUT !!
( I’M NOT WORRIED ABOUT IT SINCE IT CAME FROM YOU)
It’s yummy stuff like this that makes me lament my potato allergy. Maybe if I sneak a bit real quick, the allergy won’t notice …
This is my go-to potato salad recipe now. It’s utterly perfect. Thank you!
Delicious!!! I made a double batch of this (minus the pickles) or a family birthday gathering. My husband said it’s the best I’ve ever made.
I’ve made this so many times and it’s always delicious. I add a few sliced radishes too. Thanks for this great recipe.
