Hearty Potato Salad
1½ pounds small red potatoes, cleaned and unpeeled
Fine sea salt, to taste
½ cup mayonnaise
Juice of ½ a lemon
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
¼ cup finely chopped red onion
2 hard-boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
⅓ cup coarsely chopped dill pickles
2 tablespoons finely chopped chives, plus more for garnish
1. Place the potatoes in a large pot with enough water to cover them by 2 inches, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat.
2. Once boiling, season with salt, reduce the heat to medium, and cook until the potatoes are tender, 25-30 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and paprika. Season with ½ teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of pepper.
4. Dice the potatoes and transfer to a separate large bowl, along with the onion, eggs, pickles, and chives. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour the sauce over the potatoes and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle with chopped chives, for garnish.
