  1. Place the potato cubes in a large bowl and cover them with water. Add a pinch of salt to the water. Bring the water to a boil while using high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the potatoes for about 10-15 minutes or until they are tender when opening with a fork.
  2. Drain the water from the cooked potatoes and let them cool to room temperature.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chopped pickles, hard-boiled eggs, finely chopped onion, finely chopped celery, mustard, apple cider vinegar, salt, and ground black pepper. Stir well to create the dressing.
  4. Add the cooled potatoes to the bowl with the dressing. Gently toss the potatoes with the dressing until they are well coated.
  5. Taste the potato salad and adjust the seasonings if needed, adding more salt, pepper, or vinegar according to your preference.
  6. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the potato salad for at least 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to meld together.
  7. Before serving, give the potato salad a gentle stir to redistribute the dressing. You can garnish it with extra chopped pickles, celery leaves, or a sprinkle of paprika if desired.


Serve the delicious potato salad chilled as a side dish or a main course. It pairs well with grilled meats, sandwiches, or as a barbecue side. Enjoy your homemade potato salad!
