Nan's Classic Mustard Potato Salad

Recipe by PanNan
SERVES: 16-20




  • Boil potatoes in the peel with the whole eggs.
  • Remove the eggs after 10 minutes of boiling, and remove and drain the potatoes when just fork tender.
  • Let eggs and potatoes cool to room temperature.
  • Peel all and refrigerate whole potatoes and eggs until cold.
  • The potatoes will dice and hold up better when cold.
  • Dice the potatoes into 1/4- 3/8" dice.
  • Place into a very large container with a lid.
  • (I have a 4 1/2 qrt glass bowl-shaped casserole with lid that's perfect.) Crumble the eggs (I do this by squishing them in my hand) and add to the container with the diced potatoes.
  • Very finely (like the size of dill relish pieces) chop the onion, celery and pickles.
  • Add to the potatoes and eggs.
  • Gently stir to mix the ingredients evenly.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the mayonnaise, mustard, dill pickle juice, cream, salt, pepper and sugar.
  • Whisk until creamy.
  • Pour over potato mixture.
  • Gently stir until the dry particles are coated with the creamy mixture.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
  • 6- 8 hours is even better.
  • If you like color you can sprinkle some sweet paprika over the top.
