Which potato is best for potato salad
We use white potatoes or Yukon gold in our recipes at home. Because their skin is thinner, they are easier to peel after boiling, have a creamier and sweeter taste, and maintain a good shape after cooking. Avoid potatoes with higher starch content, such as russets, as they tend to become mushy in such salads.
Also remember to choose potatoes of the same size to get the most consistent cooking results.
Bring a large pot of cold water to a boil. Reduce the heat to a slight boil over medium heat. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork or paired knife. Drain and cool until it can be processed.
Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1/2" to 3/4" square pieces. Transfer the hot potatoes to a large bowl and sprinkle with white vinegar. Stir the potatoes and vinegar together, set the potatoes aside to cool, about 15-20 minutes.
Add the celery and green onions to the potato mixture. Chop 4 hard-boiled eggs and add them to the potato mixture.
In a medium bowl, mix Miracle Whip or mayonnaise, yellow mustard, celery seeds, salt and pepper. Stir in the potato mixture and season with more salt and pepper.
Cut the last egg into thin slices and place it on the salad. If necessary, sprinkle with chili powder. Chill for at least 1 hour or overnight before serving.
