Potato Salad is a summertime favorite—great for picnics, potlucks, cookouts, meals on the patio…you name it! There are lots of different potato salad recipes out there, but I wanted to make one that was on the classic side, and the classic potato salads I’ve had seem to always include cubed potatoes, mayo, vinegar, mustard, chopped pickles or pickle relish, hard boiled eggs, and paprika sprinkled on top!Continue reading
Two of my favorite summer foods are deviled eggs and potato salad. So why not put them together? I decided to try that out, and found that this Deviled Egg Potato Salad is soooo good! The deviled egg mixture is so yummy with a sprinkling of paprika on top and the potato salad is a creamy mustard-style salad that goes perfectly with the taste of the deviled eggs on top. And there are some eggs mixed into the potato salad too, giving you lots of delicious deviled egg flavor.
I tried a new mayonnaise in this recipe which was really good–JUST MAYO from Hampton Creek, a company on a mission to make healthier food affordable. This mayonnaise is made with healthy ingredients like non-GMO expeller pressed canola oil, filtered water, lemon juice, white vinegar, and a touch of organic sugar, pea protein, and spices. So it’s great for people with soy and egg allergies, since it’s egg-free. But you’d never know–it has such a rich taste and creamy texture. And of course it is cholesterol-free too. This mayo also comes in several savory flavors: Chipotle, Sriracha, and Garlic. You can visit the Hampton Creek site to find where it’s available at stores near you.
I’m having a giveaway which includes samples of Hampton Creek Just Mayo, Just Mayo Sriracha, and Just Mayo Garlic, plus a handy little hat with the Hampton Creek logo on it. See the end of the post for details on the giveaway!
Going back to the Deviled Egg Potato Salad, this would be a great dish to make over Labor Day weekend, especially if you are planning on having a potluck or picnic! This dish is definitely not cholesterol-free like the Just Mayo is, but at least this mayo doesn’t add any additional cholesterol, for those of you who have to watch that. And if you just want to make a basic egg-free potato salad, follow the directions for the POTATO SALAD part of this recipe, leaving the hard-boiled eggs out.
DEVILED EGG POTATO SALAD by NancyC, adapted from CDKitchen
Makes about 10 servings
- 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled (you will need a total of 9 hard-boiled eggs; see the rest of the recipe below)
- 1 teaspoon minced dill pickle (or you can substitute sweet pickles)
- 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 dash salt
- 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
- 1/3 cup yellow mustard
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup shredded or finely chopped dill pickles (or you can substitute sweet pickles)
- 1/2 Tablespoon dill pickle juice
- 1 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 6 cups boiled potatoes (peeled or unpeeled) and cubed
- 3 hard-boiled eggs, finely chopped
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon paprika
Cut 6 of the 9 boiled eggs in half; remove yolk (save the other 3 eggs for the potato salad mixture). Place yolks in medium bowl and mix with pickles, mustards, mayonnaise, and salt; stuff the 6 eggs with the yolk mixture and set aside.
In large bowl, blend the onion, mustards, salt, pickles, pickle juice, and mayonnaise. Then stir in the cubed boiled potatoes, and add in the remaining 3 hard boiled eggs, finely chopped, last.
Spoon mixture into large serving bowl (or keep in your large mixing bowl if you want to serve the salad from that). Top with paprika, sprinkling evenly over the salad, and arrange deviled eggs around the top of the salad in a circle for garnish (you can top the deviled eggs with a little paprika too, if you want).

If you like dill pickles and dill seasoning, you’ll want to try this potato salad! I’ve had this recipe for awhile and there are three things I really like about it: 1) it has red potatoes in it, which I prefer over regular potatoes, 2) you don’t need to peel the potatoes (I find potato peeling pretty tedious), and 3) it has dill pickles in it! This is a cool and creamy potato salad that is perfect for summer meals and picnics.Continue reading
