Classic Potato Salad

I know that there are many versions of what a Classic Potato Salad should be.  This Classic Potato Salad has a mayonnaise and mustard base with onions, celery and boiled eggs.  Sounds Classic enough for me.

I love making this potato salad in the summer with grilled ribs, chicken and even pork chops.  The best part about this potato salad, is that you can put it together in a few minutes and throw in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

Make sure that the potatoes are not overcooked.  You want them to be tender but firm, remember we are making potato salad not mashed potatoes.  I love everything about this potato salad, it has great texture and taste, it's creamy and just simply delicious.


3-4 pounds red potatoes, peeled cut into quarters
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp white vinegar
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped white or red onion
salt to taste
1/2 tsp black pepper
4 hard boiled eggs, peeled cut into small pieces

Boil potatoes in salted water.  Potatoes should be cooked until tender but still firm.  Place potatoes in large bowl.  Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper.  Add mixture to the potatoes, then add the celery and onions.  Mix well, stir in the eggs. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
