Ingredients
  • 1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 pounds medium waxy-style potatoes, quartered (6 to 8 potatoes)
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 stalks celery (with leaves), chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • Freshly ground pepper
Directions

1. Soak the onions in a small bowl of cold water for 15 minutes. Drain.

2. Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan with cold water to cover by about 2 inches and season generously with salt. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer until fork tender, about 8 minutes. Drain, transfer the potatoes to a large bowl, and mix with the onions and celery. Set aside to cool.

3. Place the eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and continue to cook for 7 minutes. Drain and transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water until cool, about 5 minutes. Peel and roughly chop the eggs.

4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, parsley, relish, mustard, lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon salt. Carefully mix the mayonnaise into the potatoes with a rubber spatula. Add the eggs, taking care not to break them up too much. Season the salad with pepper to taste. Serve.
