How To Make the BEST Mustard Potato Salad
This is my go-to potato salad recipe. It’s simple, packed with flavor, and a perfect balance of cool, creamy, and fresh. I prefer the butteriness of Yukon Gold Potatoes in this salad, but red potatoes work well too. The sauce is a delicious mix of mayonnaise, mustard, pickles, eggs, and spices.
But, the best part of this potato salad? Fresh cherry tomatoes! If you’ve never put tomatoes in potato salad before, you’ll be amazed at how such a simple addition elevates this picnic and BBQ staple to a whole other level.

- 3 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
- 6 hard boiled eggs, cooled, shells peeled off and cut into 1/4-inch slices

- 1 cup dill pickles, diced
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

- 1 tsp celery seed
- 1/2 tsp sugar

- 12 – 16 oz fresh cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
- Fill a large saucepan halfway full of water. Sprinkle in a couple teaspoons of salt and set it over high heat. When the water is boiling, add the potatoes. Let the potatoes cook until they are tender if you poke one with a fork, but still firm, about 10 – 13 minutes.
- Pour into a colander set inside the sink and let drain. Rinse with cold water for 5 minutes or so to stop cooking. Let the potatoes cool completely before proceeding.
- Add all the remaining ingredients except the cherry tomatoes to a large bowl. Stir until completely combined. Add the potatoes and stir gently until they are completely coated in the sauce. Top with cherry tomatoes and serve.
Potato salad should be kept in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve it. It will keep, covered, in the refrigerator, for about 4 days.
