📖 How To Make Potato Salad with Everything Seasoning

1️⃣ Boil red potatoes: Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil over high heat. Add cubed potatoes. Bring water back to a boil and boil potatoes for 10 to 12 minutes or until fork-tender (soft to the touch but not mushy).

2️⃣ Cool potatoes: Once the potatoes are cooked through, drain them in a colander under running cold water to keep them from cooking any further.

3️⃣ Make everything bagel salad dressing: In a large bowl, add mayo, dijon and everything bagel seasoning. Whisk together until smooth and creamy.

4️⃣ Mix potato salad: To the bowl with the salad dressing, add chopped onions and celery. Stir well. Lastly, fold in cooled potatoes. Toss everything together until the potatoes and veggies are evenly distributed and evenly coated in dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

5️⃣ Chill potato salad & serve: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Before serving, give the potato salad another toss. Sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning as garnish (optional) and serve.

👩🏻‍🍳 Chefs Tips

  • The best potatoes for potato salad should have a waxy texture and thin skin. Red potatoes can be used interchangeable with gold, yellow and fingerling. But for best results, red potatoes win here.
  • Using a pot with a steamer insert makes it much easier to lift the boiled potatoes out of the water and straight under running cold water.
  • The potatoes should be soft and creamy when they are finished cooking. Boil potatoes until they are just soft enough to piece with a fork but not mushy.
  • Allow the potato salad to chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. This brings everything to the same chilled temperature and incorporates all of the flavors.

🥚 Variations & Substitutions

  • Whole30 Potato Salad: Be sure to use a compliant store-bought mayo or make homemade mayo. Finding a compliant dijon mustard can be tricky but there are plenty of other compliant mustard to choose from. You can also use a 1/2 tablespoon of yellow mustard powder instead. Aside from the mayo and dijon, the rest of the ingredients are naturally Whole30 compliant.
  • Vegan Everything Bagel Potato Salad: Swap regular mayo with your favorite egg-free vegan mayo alternative.

🥓Other Add-Ins

  • Pickled Onion
  • Pickle Juice (just a splash)
  • Relish
  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Pickled Jalapeno
  • Chopped Chive
  • Chopped Bacon
  • Fresh Parsley
  • Shredded Cheese

⌚Make Ahead Of Time

Potato salad lasts 3 to 5 days in the fridge if you keep it in an airtight container and cool. It’s not a good idea to freeze it because the potatoes can get grainy and dressings can separate when thawed.
