The Worlds Best Potato Salad

This may be the The Worlds Best Potato Salad. It’s the best I’ve ever tasted. The unique flavoring comes from the unusual cooked dressing.

Worlds Best Potato Salad

Follow the procedure and it will be worth every last bite.

As odd as it sounds, the mixture includes eggs, mustard, butter, evaporated milk and mayonnaise and yields the creamiest, richest dressing for potato salad that you’ve ever had.

The major part of the salad is fairly traditional – potatoes, hard boiled eggs, celery and onion. Combine this with the cooked dressing and your taste buds will thank you forever!

  • 6 medium russet potatoes
  • 1 small sweet onion finely chopped
  • 4 stalks celery finely chopped
  • 6 large eggs hard boiled and peeled.
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 large eggs well beaten
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 can 15 ounces evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 stick ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Make the dressing – Whisk together the 2 well-beaten eggs, sugar, cornstarch and ½ teaspoon kosher salt in a medium saucepan.
  2. Whisk in the cider vinegar, evaporated milk, and Dijon mustard. Heat the pot to medium, stirring frequently, until the sauce is thickened – this should take about 10 minutes. Do not let the mixture boil.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the butter, piece by piece. Refrigerate the sauce until it has stiffened, then whisk it together with the mayonnaise. Cover the dressing and keep refrigerated.
  4. Put the potatoes in a large saucepan or soup pot and cover with cold water. Bring the pot to a boil and cook the potatoes until they are fork-tender, about 20 minutes. Drain them and let them cool.
  5. Peel the cooled potatoes and dice them into 1-inch cubes. In a large bowl, toss the cooked potatoes with the chopped onion, celery, chopped hard boiled eggs, 1 teaspoon kosher salt and the white pepper.
  6. Fold the chilled dressing into the potato mixture and stir until everything is well coated with the dressing. Cover the bowl and chill at least 1 hour, and preferably overnight.
