Especially in deli-style diners, potato salad is a staple accompaniment to sandwiches. It has been a regular feature on the American table since the 19th century. If you can find tiny new potatoes, by all means use them; otherwise, any red potato 2 inches (5 cm) or less in diameter will work fine.
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 lb small red potatoes, unpeeled
3 celery stalks, cut into slices 1/4 inch thick
1/4 cup finely diced red (Spanish) onion
For the Dressing:
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon mustard seeds
1 green onion, including the tender green tops, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
Deli-Style Potato Salad Recipe at
Bring a large saucepan three-fourths full of water to a boil. Add the salt and then the potatoes. Boil until tender but slightly resistant when pierced with a fork, 15-25 minutes depending upon the size. Drain and, when cool enough to handle, cut the unpeeled potatoes into 1-inch (2.5-cm) pieces.

In a bowl, combine the potatoes, celery and red onion and toss briefly to mix. Set aside.

In a small bowl and using a fork, stir together the sour cream, mayonnaise, mustard seeds, green onion, parsley, dry mustard, salt and pepper, mixing well.

Pour the dressing over the potato mixture. Using a large spoon, mix well, being careful not to break up the potatoes too much.

Transfer the salad to a large serving platter or bowl, if desired. For the best flavor, cover and chill for up to 2 hours before serving. Sprinkle the parsley over the top and serve.
