This Texas-inspired potato salad takes advantage of spring's sweet new potatoes and early onions. Partially mashing the spuds makes for an extra-creamy potato salad. In Texas you'd dish this out with an ice cream scoop.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water by 2 inches. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cook until tender, 8 to 12 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Let stand until almost cool, about 30 minutes.

  • Whisk mayonnaise, mustard and pickle brine in a small bowl.

  • Cut the potatoes into 1-inch pieces and transfer to a large bowl. Mash them halfway so there are still some chunks--they shouldn't be totally smooth. Fold in the dressing, pickles, spring onions (or scallions), pepper and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Chill for at least 30 minutes (and up to 1 day) before serving.


To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 1 day.
