Grain Mustard Potato Salad


Grain Mustard Potato Salad

With just a handful of ingredients, you can create a potato salad that’s delicious and memorable. It’s also a bit healthier, too, since it uses waxy potatoes instead of starchy potatoes, and so there’s plenty of fiber to help you feel satisfied with less.

  • 2 Pounds waxy potatoes, such as red, butterball, white rose, or Yukon Gold
  • Salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 Cup seasoned rice wine vinegar or ½ cup cider, white, or champagne vinegar plus 1 tablespoon sugar or honey
  • 1/3 Cup grain mustard
  • 1/2 sweet onion, diced
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced thinly


If the potatoes are small, cut them in half. If larger, cut them into bite-sized pieces. Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Season with salt, to taste. Place over high heat and boil until just tender and a fork pierces the potatoes easily.

Drain thoroughly using a colander and transfer to a bowl. While the potatoes are warm, lightly fold in the vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary. Finally, fold in the onion and scallions. Serve.
