Creole Potato Salad

This is in the top two potato salads I have ever eaten. SO good! That little bottle of creole mustard makes ALL the difference.

2 lbs. new potatoes (peel on or off, your choice) scrubbed clean and cut into 1 to 2-inch chunks
6 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 T cider vinegar
1 tspn. sugar
1/2 cup Creole mustard
3/4 cup mayonnaise (more or less, however you like it)
Cajun seasoning, for garnish

Place potatoes in a large pot. Cover with cold water. If you need to hard boil the eggs, put those in there too and they can cook along with the potatoes. Bring to a boil, add about a tsp. of salt, reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook about ten minutes and drain in a colander.

While potatoes are boiling, mix the sugar, vinegar, mayo and mustard in with the celery, peppers and onion in a large bowl.

While the potatoes are still warm, gently mixing them in with the dressing allowing the potatoes to soak in some of the flavor from the seasonings better.

Gently fold the chopped hard-boiled eggs into the mixture until well combined. Put the potato salad in the frig to cool for about an hour before serving.

Serve chilled and garnish with paprika or Cajun seasoning.

We had this with Polenta-Crusted Baked Chicken and watermelon.

Did I change anything? I didn’t, but if I were to make it again (which I will because it was awesome) I would only make half as much. This was a good amount if you were going to a potluck or something, but for a family of four, it was a bit much.

What did the family think? Hubby and I thought it was DIVINE! Kids didn’t think do, but I knew that when I was making it. This potato salad has some serious flavor. Make it, your family will thank you.
