I Could Eat the Whole Bowl Mustard Potato Salad

I tend to not make a lot of potato salad, largely because I'm not particularly good at it. I guess in order to be good at it, you have to have a good recipe. When I would make potato salad that I thought was tasty, Mr. O-P never seemed to like it. He tended to like the potato salad that I got at the local deli. Well, what can I say? 
But, I found myself with a real dilemma staring me in the face earlier this week, when I realized that I had three sacks of potatoes all of which were starting to form eyes, and desperately needed using. So, I cooked up each bag separately, and set out to do three different things. The first bag was of Melissa's baby red potatoes that I turned into this mayonnaise/mustard potato salad. I thought this was delicious, and it was really easy. So much so, that I will undoubtedly never buy deli potato salad again! So, if you're like me, and you don't have a good recipe for potato salad, or you want something that's fairly easy to throw together, this just may be your answer.
I Could Eat the Whole Bowl Mustard Potato Salad

1 1.5-pound bag
Melissa's baby red potatoes
4 ribs celery, diced
1 bunch scallions (about five), diced
1/2 cup chopped parsley
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
3 Tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 cup Duke’s mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Grey Poupon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Halve potatoes. Boil 10 minutes; drain. Place potatoes, celery, scallions, parsley, and eggs into a large bowl. Pour vinegar over top; toss. Mix mayonnaise and mustard together in a small bowl; fold into potato mixture. Salt and pepper generously. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours to meld flavors. Serve.

This potato salad looks nice and "juicy", so I know I will love it. Although my SIL makes the best mustard potato salad in the world (she uses a stick of butter!), I have not been able to duplicate it in spite of having the recipe right in front of me. I'm going to give yours a try!

I love potatoes and don't make potato salad very often because I will eat it and keep coming back for more.
I've never had the mustard version, but it does look delicious. Thanks for the recipe

Oh, yum! This sounds like the potato salad my mother makes and we love it! I'm glad I found it on the Homestead Blog Hop. Pinning for later. Thanks!
