“A variant of this recipe was discovered by my Aunt Judy in a Good Housekeeping Cookbook. Not sure that folks on Madison Avenue would claim this as their own but it's certainly tasty, especially if you like hard boiled eggs in your potato salad (and if you don't, you can obviously omit them).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cover whole, unpeeled potatoes with water in a large pot. Bring to boil. Cook for 20-25 minutes, or until a fork easily slides into the center without resistance. If desired, peel the skins off. Dice.
  2. While the potatoes cook, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Taste for seasoning; add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Place all salad ingredients in a large bowl. Pour dressing over the top and stir to combine; ideally, the potatoes will still be warm at this point. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for several hours to allow the flavors to blend.
