This Classic Potato Salad recipe is a must-have for all potato lovers at every spring & summer get-together! With a delicious creamy texture, slight tang, hint of mustard, and a little crunch, it’s the perfect pairing for just about anything you grill up!


  • 1 1/2 pounds of russet potatoes, peeled and cubed into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 scallions, green and white parts, thinly sliced
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • A couple of pinches of paprika


  1. Add the cubed potatoes to a medium saucepan and add enough cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, and then cook until the potatoes are fork-tender but not mushy about 8 minutes. Drain.
  2. While the potatoes are still hot, season with vinegar, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Let the potatoes cool to room temperature, and then add them to a large bowl along with the mayo, celery, half of the scallion, and the chopped hard-boiled eggs. Stir gently to combine.
  4. Transfer the potato salad to a serving bowl. Top with the remaining half of the scallions and the paprika.
  5. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.
  6. Serve & enjoy!
