Summer Red Potato Salad with Egg & Simple Cole Slaw


Summer Red Potato Salad with Egg (this makes a LOT)


5 lbs red potatoes (or other potato) - cubed into bite size chunks

3 celery stalks - diced

1 small onion - minced

5 scallions - diced (some green slices reserved for garnish)

5 eggs - hard boiled & chopped

1 lg zucchini - diced (VERY optional)

2 cups mayonnaise

1/3 cup plus 2 TBS Dijon mustard

S&P to taste

Sweet or hot paprika as garnish

OPTIONAL ADDITIONS: BBQ sauce, sriracha, Tabasco, minced chipotle or adobo sauce, horseradish sauce, wasabi.


Boil the cubed potatoes until just tender.  You can boil the eggs in the same pan with the potatoes.  Test by spiking one with a fork & lifting it out of the water.  When done - the potato will slowly drop from the fork.  Try not to overcook them.  When done - drain & plunge into cold water & set aside.  

Cool, peel & chop the eggs.

Drain the potatoes & then simply mix all the ingredients.  Garnish with the remaining chopped scallions & paprika.
