  • 4 pounds russet potatoes

  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 3 large eggs

  • cup mayonnaise, or more to taste

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard

  • ½ teaspoon celery seed

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons hot water, or as needed

  • 3 stalks celery, diced

  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced

  • 1 onion, finely diced

  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced

  • ¼ cup diced dill pickles

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 teaspoon paprika


  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain. Cut potatoes into 1-inch cubes, leaving skin on. Drizzle potatoes with vinegar while warm; set aside to cool completely, about 20 minutes.

  2. Place eggs in a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat; let eggs stand in hot water for 15 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water; cool under cold running water. Peel eggs; cut 2 eggs into 1/4-inch dice. Slice the remaining egg into 1/4-inch slices; set aside for garnish.

  3. Stir together the 2 diced eggs, mayonnaise, salt, dry mustard, celery seed, and black pepper in a large bowl; stir in hot water. Stir potatoes, celery, red bell pepper, onion, green onions, pickles, and parsley into mayonnaise mixture; cover and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Sprinkle salad with paprika and arrange reserved egg slices on top before serving.

Cook's Note:

Cooking potatoes in their skins prevents them from absorbing too much water and losing flavor.
