Directions

  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until tender. Drain, and place in a serving bowl.
  2. Stir the onion, salt and pepper into the potatoes while they are still hot. This allows the potatoes to absorb the flavor. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes.
  3. Add the mayonnaise, mustard and horseradish to the salad, and mix well. Gently stir in the eggs and dill pickles. Finish off with a generous grinding of black pepper on top. Chill for about 30 minutes before serving.

This is a really delicious potato salad, especially with the background flavor from the horseradish and the kick from the freshly ground black pepper. I added celery (in equal amount to the onion) and some fresh dill. I also used equal parts honey mustard and deli mustard, instead of the yellow mustard; the honey mustard cuts the tang of the horseradish a bit and provides a really nice flavor. Thanks for the dish!

Made this for the family and everyone gave it great reviews. To me though, it was just missing a little something. It was a very good potato salad and kept wonderfully for leftovers, but... The horseradish does give it an unexpected flavor and is a good addition.
