  • 2 pounds yukon gold potatoes (about 6 medium)
  • 1 ½ cups mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 3-4 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 stalks of celery, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, roughly chopped


  • Peel and dice potatoes into cubes.
  • Place potatoes into a large pot of water.
  • Boil for about 20 minutes (or until fork tender).
  • Take care not to overcook your potatoes – you don’t want them overly mushy.
  • Mix mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, chicken stock and salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  • Add potatoes, celery, onion and stir gently.
  • Stir in eggs.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours to blend flavors and chill.



Potatoes love to soak up all the mayonnaise, so if you noticed your salad is just a little dry when you are ready to serve, just add a little more mayonnaise and chicken stock and it will restore the creaminess of your potato salad.
