Mustard Potato Salad

Updated on August 30, 2017

Mustard Potato Salad Recipe

Want a delicious recipe for home-made mustard potato salad? I'm going to share the recipe my mother taught me. I've always loved this potato salad since I was a kid. Every time I make it for my friend's 4th of July party or just for any family get together it is always a big favorite. I like my potato salad chunky and I do not care for celery or pimentos in my potato salad.

If you love mustard potato salad then you have got to try this recipe. I hope you enjoy it!


This is the recipe my mother taught me.


  • 5 to 6 large potatoes
  • 3 to 4 eggs (boiled and peeled)
  • Mayonnaise (Hellmann's)
  • Yellow mustard
  • Pickles (dill)
  • Onion
  • Paprika (optional)


  1. 1. Boil potatoes, skin them and break into chunks in large bowl.
  2. 2. Chop eggs into tiny pieces in a small to medium bowl.
  3. 3. Chop pickles and onions into small pieces and add to eggs.
  4. 4. Add egg mixture to potatoes.
  5. 5. Add several large spoonfuls of mayonnaise to potatoes and mix well until desired consistency.
  6. 6. Add yellow mustard and mix well until desired color and flavor.
  7. 7. Sprinkle some paprika on top of potato salad for color and extra taste.
  8. All of the ingredient amounts can be adjusted to suit your taste. I usually use about 3 pickles and half an onion. Just start with smaller amounts, mix, and add more to meet your taste.

Nan's Classic Mustard Potato Salad

  • 8 cups russet potatoes (cooked
  • peeled
  • then diced) (about 10 -12 medium potatoes)
  • 6 eggs (hard boiled and finely crumbled)
  • 2 cups sweet onions (very finely diced)
  • 1 cup celery (peeled and very finely diced)
  • 3/4 cup dill pickles (very finely diced)
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise (I prefer Miracle Whip
  • but mayo works well
  • too)
  • 2 tablespoons mustard ( the regular yellow type)
  • 1/4 cup pickle juice
  • 1/4 cup cream (I use half and half)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  1. 1. Boil potatoes in the peel with the whole eggs.
  2. 2. Remove the eggs after 10 minutes of boiling, and remove and drain the potatoes when just fork tender.
  3. 3. Let eggs and potatoes cool to room temperature.
  4. 4. Peel all and refrigerate whole potatoes and eggs until cold.
  5. 5. The potatoes will dice and hold up better when cold.
  6. 6. Dice the potatoes into 1/4- 3/8" dice.
  7. 7. Place into a very large container with a lid.
  8. 8. (I have a 4 1/2 qrt glass bowl-shaped casserole with lid that's perfect.) Crumble the eggs (I do this by squishing them in my hand) and add to the container with the diced potatoes.
  9. 9. Very finely (like the size of dill relish pieces) chop the onion, celery and pickles.
  10. 10. Add to the potatoes and eggs.
  11. 11. Gently stir to mix the ingredients evenly.
  12. 12. In a separate bowl, mix the mayonnaise, mustard, dill pickle juice, cream, salt, pepper and sugar.
  13. 13. Whisk until creamy.
  14. 14. Pour over potato mixture.
  15. 15. Gently stir until the dry particles are coated with the creamy mixture.
  16. 16. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
  17. 17. 6- 8 hours is even better.
  18. 18. If you like color you can sprinkle some sweet paprika over the top.

      I love potato salad! I make mine with homemade dijon mayonnaise, lots of sautéed leeks and a sprinkle of mustard seeds for crunch. Yum!
