2 pounds of potatoes (preferably russet or Yukon Gold), peeled and cut into bite-sized cubes
4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of diced celery
1/4 cup of diced red onion
1/4 cup of diced dill pickles
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: chopped fresh parsley for garnish
Place the cubed potatoes in a large pot and cover them with cold water. Add a pinch of salt to the water. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat and cook the potatoes until they are fork-tender. This usually takes about 10-12 minutes. Drain the cooked potatoes and set them aside to cool.
In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper. Adjust the seasonings to suit your taste preferences.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked and cooled potatoes, chopped hard-boiled eggs, diced celery, diced red onion, and diced dill pickles. Gently toss the ingredients together.
Pour the prepared dressing over the potato mixture. Stir well to coat all the ingredients evenly with the dressing.
Cover the bowl and refrigerate the Potato Salad for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld together.
Before serving, give the Potato Salad a gentle toss to ensure that the dressing is evenly distributed. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
Serve the Potato Salad chilled and enjoy it as a side dish for picnics, barbecues, or any gathering.
Note: Feel free to customize the Potato Salad by adding other ingredients such as diced bell peppers, chopped green onions, or cooked bacon for added flavor and texture.
