Best Ever Homemade Potato Salad

best ever homemade potato salad square 1

 Everyone needs a go-to potato salad recipe, and this one is mine!  The dressing is the perfect combination of tangy vinegar and creamy mayonnaise, with the zip of coarse ground Dijon mustard thrown in for good measure.  The peas add great flavor and color, and the red potatoes have a great firm texture with no peeling required.  In a word?  Perfection.

Best of all, the whole recipe takes just a few simple ingredients and comes together fast.  Add this to the menu at your next barbecue and watch this often-forgotten side dish finally get the attention it deserves!
