Not-Your-Typical Potato Salad


3 pounds of delicious potatoes, such as yukon gold or baby red
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 tablespoons caraway seeds
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons horseradish
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 cup chopped celery

Cooking Instructions

Scrub the potatoes well to remove any dirt from their skins. Chop into bite-sized pieces, and steam the potatoes until they are perfectly done (when they can easily be pierced with a fork but aren't falling apart). Transfer the potatoes to a colander and rinse lightly with cool water to stop them from overcooking. Set the potatoes aside to cool.

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, cider vinegar, caraway seeds, salt, horseradish, and prepared mustard. Taste the dressing to see if it needs more of any of the ingredients (I sometimes add more horseradish when I want a spicer salad).

In a large bowl, mix the potatoes together with the dressing and the chopped celery, stirring carefully to avoid breaking the potatoes. Serve right away or cover and refrigerate if serving later.

Makes 6 servings
