This classic potato salad is seriously the best recipe you will try! Made with egg, it is wonderfully creamy and a must for any cookout this summer!

what you need:

russet potatoes

kosher salt

granulated sugar

apple cider vinegar






Place the potatoes, 2 tablespoons kosher salt, 2 tablespoons cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons sugar in a large saucepan and cover with cold water by 2-inches.

Stir well. Bring the water to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain and transfer potatoes to a large mixing bowl.


Add 2 tablespoons vinegar and 1 teaspoon kosher salt, stir vigorously to rough up the potato edges slightly and cool to room temperature. While potatoes cool, prepare the other ingredients.


Use a fork to mash 3 of the hard-cooked eggs and rough-chop the other 3 (set the 3 chopped eggs aside to add later).


In a different large mixing bowl, add the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons vinegar, mashed eggs, chopped celery, & onions, mayonnaise, relish (if using), mustard, and black pepper.
