Directions

  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and cool potatoes, then peel and dice. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Place eggs in a saucepan and 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 chop eggs. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Combine potatoes, eggs, and green onions in a large bowl or roasting pan. Stir mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and black pepper in a bowl; pour mixture over potatoes and gently toss to combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

So thankful for this recipe! it has all the same ingredients I use for a potato salad, but I have to make enough for a small wedding and was so unsure how to do that!

I have been eating, and making, this type of potato salad since I met my husband 44 years ago. The only difference is we add some dill pickle juice to the mayonnaise mixture before adding it to the potatoes, eggs and green onions. My mother-in-law always used 5 pounds of red potatoes, one dozen eggs and close to two bunches of green onions (green parts only). The mayo-mustard, salt and pepper were never measured. I followed your recipe using 5 pounds of potato but added a lot more mustard than listed (I USED TWO TABLESPOONS, AS WE LIKE IT TO HAVE SOME ZIP). IT WAS FANTASTIC! I CAN NOW DUPLICATE THE TASTE EVERY TIME.

Even as a mustard style potato salad preferrer, I rate this mayo style pot. Salad an A+. I made this for a serving of 3. I just adjusted the serving size on the recipe, & cooked potatoes only for 12 min vs 20. It turned out delicious!
