  • 2 lb of peeled russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and cut into small chunks
  • 5 green onions, diced
  • 3 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise.
  • Bacon bits (optional)
  • Sweet pickles, diced (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place potatoes in a large pot of cold, well salted water and bring to a boil. Once water reaches a boil reduce and simmer. Cook for 35 minutes or until potatoes are easily pierced with a knife. Drain and set aside until cool enough to handle, but still warm.

  2. Cut potatoes into bite-sized pieces and mix gently with vinegar, salt and pepper.

  3. In large bowl combine eggs, onion, celery, mayonnaise, bacon bits and pickles. Add potatoes and gently combine. Place in airtight container and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Serve cold.

For the problem of mushy potatoes, boil them with their skins on. This will keep them intact. Start with cold, well salted water. If you pick potatoes that are all about the same size they will cook up evenly.

If you peel and cube the potatoes while they're hot and drizzle them with vinegar they will absorb the flavor. They won't absorb any flavor cold.
