Potato Salad Recipe

This basic salad is my go-to potato salad recipe, the one my family always enjoys. Feel free to leave the onions out of this salad, or serve them on the side. Green onions are good in this as well.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes



Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch pieces. Put in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 12 to 18 minutes, until potatoes are fork tender but still firm. Drain and let cool with cover ajar.

Combine the cooled potatoes with the chopped hard cooked eggs, onion, and celery. Gently stir in 1/2 cup mayonnaise and the mustard, along with the pepper. Add more mayonnaise, as needed. Add salt to taste.
