Total Time 55minutes
Servings 4to 6 portions
4large potatoeswashed and unpeeled
4hard-boiled eggssave 1 for garnish
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped dill - you can also use parsley or cilantro
Place the whole unpeeled potatoes in a pot with plenty of water and a little salt. Cook until soft, about 30-40 minutes depending on size. I usually try to poke a knife through the middle to check for doneness.
Put the potatoes in a bowl of cold water to cool them and then proceed to peel them and cut them into small or medium chunks.
To cook prepare the hard-boiled eggs, bring water to a boil in a medium sized saucepan. Then gently add the eggs - one by one using a spoon so they don't break. You can add a teaspoon of baking soda - this helps make it easier to peel them. Let the eggs cook in the boiling water for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a bowl with cold water until you are ready to peel them.
I recommend saving one of the eggs to use as a garnish for the salad. Peel and then dice the rest of the hard-boiled eggs.
In a medium bowl or platter, add the chopped potatoes, the chopped hard-boiled eggs, the diced white onion, and the chopped celery.
To prepare the dressing, mix the mayonnaise (or yogurt) with the mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper. Pour this dressing on top of the chopped potatoes/eggs and mix well.
Taste the salad and adjust the amount of salt/pepper to taste. Add the chopped dill and paprika. If you saved one of the hard-boiled eggs, cut it into quarters or slices and use them to decorate the salad. The salad can be served on top of lettuce leaves.
The salad can be served immediately, or it can be kept in the refrigerator until serving time. Personally, I find that the flavor improves if it is left to rest for a few hours before serving.
Additional ingredients that you can add to this potato salad based on your preference:
