  • 5 pounds - Red Potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons - Apple Cider Vinegar, Adjust to taste
  • 2 tablespoons - Mayonnaise, heaping spoonfuls
  • 4 tablespoons - Sour Cream, heaping spoonfuls
  • 3 whole - Green Onions, finely chopped
  • 1 whole - Yellow Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoons - Salt, Adjust to taste
  • 1 tablespoons - Fresh Ground Black Pepper, Adjust to taste
  • 1 teaspoons - Cajun Seasoning, Adjust to taste
  • 1 teaspoons - Dijon Mustard, Adjust to taste
  • 2 tablespoons - Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 whole - Celery Stalks, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoons - Paprika, to top at end
  • Directions:

    1) Boil whole (skin on) potatoes in a large pot of water until semi-soft. A fork should easily penetrate potato with some resistance. Slightly harder than if making mashed potatoes. Remove from water and allow to slightly cool (1-2 minutes).
    2) Cut each potato into quarters, or 6 pieces if larger. Add to large mixing bowl.
    3) Top warm potatoes with apple cider vinegar. Allow to sit 10-15 minutes to cool and absorb vinegar. This can be done while prepping other ingredients.
    4) Finely chop green onions, yellow onion, parsley, and celery. Add to bowl after potatoes have cooled.
    5) Add wet ingredients: Mayo, Sour Cream, and mustard. Gently mix ingredients with a wood spoon.
    6) Add dry seasonings: salt, pepper, and cajun seasoning. Stir contents to combine. Some Potatoes will mash while others should be left as chunks.
    7) Taste test and add additional wet or dry ingredients per preference. I like a lot of sour cream in mine! Stir again if needed.
    8) Top with paprika so surface is dusted and covered.
    9) Cover and put in fridge. Allow flavors to meld a few hours before serving. Enjoy!
