The BEST classic potato salad recipe that is super easy to make and has everyone raving. Potato salad is the perfect spring and summer side dish for all the delicious BBQ you can possibly eat!


  • 2 1/2 lbs Yukon gold potatoes (boiled)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tbsp celery seeds
  • 2 eggs (hard boiled)
  • 2 celery stalks (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup white onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh dill (chopped)


  • Cut the potatoes into 1/2 inch chunks and carefully place them in a large pot. Fill the pot with cold water until the potatoes are fully submerged with an extra inch of water above the potatoes. Over high heat, bring the water to a boil and add 1 tablespoon of salt. Boil potatoes for about 15 minutes or until tender and can be easily pierced with a fork.
  • In a large bowl, mix the mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, mustard, apple cider vinegar, celery seeds, and salt and pepper to taste and set aside. Then, chop your hard-boiled eggs, celery, onions, and dill.
  • When the potatoes are tender, drain the water and place the potatoes in the large bowl with the mayonnaise dressing and begin to stir until the potatoes are evenly coated. Once the potatoes are coated, mix in the chopped eggs, celery, onions, and dill. Add in salt and pepper to reach desired taste. Garnish with sprinkling of paprika and fresh chopped dill.
  • Cover the potato salad and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving to ensure it is chilled through.


  • There is really no need to peel the potatoes for this recipe. But if you do not like potato skin texture you can peel the potatoes before boiling.
