  • 2 pounds russet, red, or Yukon gold potatoes
  • salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 4 hardboiled eggs, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 1 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onions, , chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • Wash potatoes and scrub off any dirt and grime. Using a sharp knife, score the skin all the way around the center of the potato while quickly twirling it around with one hand and keeping the knife steady in the other.  
  • In a large pot, add potatoes, about one teaspoon salt, and enough water to cover.  Over medium heat, bring to a boil and continue to cook on a gentle boil until fork-tender.
  • Remove from heat and drain well. Gently pull skins from both sides and discard peels. 
  • Cut potatoes into 1-inch cubes and arrange in single layer on a baking sheet. While still hot, season with salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with the vinegar. Refrigerate for about 20 to 30 minutes to cool completely.
  • In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, milk, dijon mustard, and sugar. Whisk until blended.
  • In a large bowl, add potatoes, eggs, bacon, celery, onions, and green onions. Add mayonnaise dressing and gently stir to combine.
  • Cover and refrigerate for about 1 to 2 hours or until completely cold.
