Spicy Mustard Potato Salad

Summer Potato Salad

Can you believe that the 4th of July is just around the corner?

Kuzak and I are traveling to Iowa to visit his family, while the Adorable Monster is off to camp for a week. Hot summer weather awaits us in the Midwest. In honor of that, I thought that I'd revisit one of my favorite summer recipes. Is any BBQ complete without a great potato salad? Not in my book!

Filled with spices and herbs, this isn't your average potato salad. So this holiday weekend, give it a shot. It's sure to be a hit.

Spicy Potato Salad
Serves 4-6 people
Cooking time: 35 minutes 
Vegetarian; gluten-free
Print Recipe

  • 1 1/2 pounds baby Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon tumeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon pimenton (smoked paprika)
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup spring onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • salt and pepper
  1. To cook the potatoes, bring a pot of water to a boil 
  2. Add the potatoes and cook for about 10-15 minutes, until they can be barely pierced with knife.  
  3. Strain the potatoes and cover with a towel to allow them to steam for another 15-20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, mustard, tumeric, pimenton, cayenne pepper and parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, halve or quarter them depending on their size.  
  6. Place the potatoes in a mixing bowl and cover them with the dressing to keep them moist. 
  7. Add the spring onion and celery. Toss and check seasoning (salt and pepper).
  8. Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the ingredients to blend together.  
  9. Serve cold or at room temperature. Enjoy!
Note: Potato salad may be made up to a day in advance and stored in the refrigerator. If it dries out at all, add more mayonnaise before serving.
