Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam potatoes with skin on.
  2. Mix together all ingredients except potatoes.
  3. When potatoes are done, cut (it's up to you whether or not you want to leave the skins on) while still warm and fold together with the mayo mixture- it makes it taste better to combine while warm.
  4. Put into serving container and garnish.
  5. Refrigerate for at least three hours before serving (the longer the better).
  6. This potato salad is even better then next day!
