Best Egg Salad Recipe

Look no further for the best egg salad recipe.  Enjoy!


6 lb. gold potatoes, scrubbed
6 T. apple cider vinegar
1.5 t. salt, more to taste
.75 t. black pepper, more to taste
3 cups mayonnaise
6 t. yellow mustard
1.5 t. celery seed
6 stalks celery, diced
1.5 sweet onion, diced
6 spears dill pickle, finely chopped
12 large hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
Optional garnish: fresh copped dill, paprika


  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, continue to cook until just fork tender, about 20 minutes. Drain; slightly cook about 5-10 minutes. Peel the potatoes (optional) and cut into cubes. Place into a medium bowl; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, salt and pepper. Pour over the warm cubed potatoes and gently mix. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, mustard and celery seed. Stir in the celery, onions, and pickles until evenly coated. Add the cooled potatoes and the eggs; gently mix. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Optional: Garnish with dill and paprika.

Notes:  This can be eaten right away, but for best results, cover and refrigerate one day before serving. Keep covered in the fridge for up to 1 week.
