Ingredients

  • 6 medium round red or white potatoes (2 lb), peeled
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon white or cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)

    Place potatoes in 3-quart saucepan; add enough water just to cover potatoes. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cook covered 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Cut potatoes into cubes.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    For 13 grams of fat and 210 calories per serving, use reduced-fat mayonnaise and 2 eggs.
  • tip 2
    Potato salad lovers know the secret to perfect potato salad--it starts with the potatoes! Round red or round white potatoes are best because they are a waxy variety, holding their shape after cooking. Starchy potatoes (long white), like Idaho and russets, have a fluffy texture after cooking so can become too soft and mushy for potato salad.
