Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cover the potatoes with salted cold water by 2 inches in a 3-quart saucepan and simmer, uncovered, until just tender, 15 to 25 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes.
  2. Drain in a colander and cool slightly.
  3. While the potatoes are simmering, whisk together the vinegar and salt in a large bowl until salt is dissolved.
  4. When the potatoes are just cool enough to handle, peel and cut them into 1-inch pieces, adding them to the vinegar mixture as they are cut, and toss gently with a rubber spatula to combine.
  5. Let cool to room temperature, then add the remaining ingredients and salt and pepper to taste and stir gently to combine.
  6. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

I made this on 6/01/09 for the " Summer Salad Snap Shots " event in the Cooking Photo Forum. Here's how the recipe was made for just two people, the amount of potatoes were reduced to a pound. The vinegar was cut down to just about 1 teaspoon. Instead of using celery, ( which we don't like ) about 1/4 teaspoon of ground celery seed was used.The full amount of eggs were used and just enough mayo was added to combine the ingredients. Added salt and pepper to taste. I do believe that this recipe rates right up there with one of the best I've ever made. This will be made again. RIP Miller :)

This was excellent just the right amount of twang. I quickly cut the potatoes then tossed them all together with the vinegar mixture.
