Rockin Robin's Classic Potato Salad

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars
64

"Simple and super easy; better if chilled overnight. I have tried many others but always gravitate back to my basic spud salad. Use a combination of red, russet, and new potatoes, peeled, or use scrubbed new potatoes with the skins on."

  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until tender yet still firm, about 20 minutes. Drain and refrigerate until cool, about 30 minutes.
  2. Place eggs in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 15 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water, cool under cold running water; peel and dice eggs.
  3. Chop potatoes and place into a large bowl. Stir eggs, celery, and green onions into potatoes; mix in mayonnaise and mustard. Season with salt and pepper.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • 2 1/2 pounds of potatoes will yield about 7-8 cups of cooked, cubed potatoes.
  • Can use extra mayonnaise if needed. This works out fine with reduced fat mayonnaise as well.
  • Sprinkle with paprika and garnish with parsley sprigs if desired.

Simple yet still tasty. I used chives from my garden in place of green onions, and used Dijon mustard instead of yellow. Also added in one pickle which was floating around solo in the jar. I'm u...

To be honest, I hate making potato salad. But this was worth it. Very simple, and easier than most. I used country Dijon mustard since I didn't check my on hand ingredients first, and I use red ...

This reminds me of my grandmother's recipe, I reduced the mustard and added dill pickle relish, we really enjoyed this.

This is a fantastic classic potato salad! I followed the amounts and ingredients listed to the letter. But I added a couple things. We had leftover bacon, so I crumbled in a couple slices, as we...

Just realized I haven't reviewed this recipe although I've made it several times as written. The ingredients and proportions are spot on. Thanks for sharing, Rockin Robin!
