I love potato salad. I could eat it every day, and this basic recipe came from my family. I’ve decided to experiment a little and added siracha for a kick. I was pretty timid with it and plan to add more next time, but it’s a good start and a very flexible recipe.

Siracha Mustard Potato Salad
The Siracha gives the potato salad a kick that it might otherwise wouldn't have. You can vary your amount to slightly seasoned to HOT. The prep and cook time are estimates as I tend to hard boil the eggs in my egg steamer earlier in the day and let them cool and then do the potatoes later.

Ingredients
  • 6 eggs
  • 9 russet potatoes
  • 2 Tbs black pepper
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard Measurements are an estimate. I have a big mixing bowl and I make a M and a W and a Z across it.
  • 2 cups mayo Again an estimate. I'd probably start with 1 to 1 1/2 and mix and see if you like it.
  • 1 Tbs Siracha A little goes a long way. A quick squirt and drizzle may be all you want.
  • 1 medium onion chopped. (Optional.)

Instructions
  1. 1. Peel potatoes and cut into 1-2" chunks. Place in large pan and cover with water cooking until soft so the fork goes through them, but not so soft they fall apart. When done drain. 2. Hard boil the eggs. For farm fresh eggs (which are harder to peel) or because I love it, I use my egg steamer. Perfect eggs every time! When eggs are done chill in fridge (can cook them ahead of time) or rinse in cold water, peel and chop 3. Mix 1/2 the potoates, the chopped eggs, and all other ingredients in a large bowl. When everything is combined add the rest of the potatoes and finish mixing. 4. Chill for a couple of hours because I'm probably the only one who likes warm potato salad. (But then again I'll eat it anytime, anyway.)
