Ingredients

12 russet potatoes, scrubbed

1 teaspoon kosher salt

2 cups Homemade Mayonnaise, recipe follows

1/4 cup evaporated milk

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

12 large eggs, hard-cooked, peeled, and sliced 1/4-inch thick

1 large yellow onion, cut into 1/8 inch dice

3 celery ribs, cut into 1/8-inch dice

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon mild paprika

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Homemade Mayonnaise:

1 large egg yolk*

2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1 cup canola oil

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Place the potatoes and the kosher salt in an 8-quart pot and fill it with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring the water to a gentle boil and cook the potatoes until tender. Drain. Peel the potatoes while they are still warm and slice them 1/2-inch thick.
  2. Whisk together the mayonnaise, evaporated milk, vinegar, mustard, and sugar in a small bowl. In a large bowl, combine 1/3 of the potatoes, eggs, onion, and celery with about 1/3 of the mayonnaise mixture. Repeat with the remaining ingredients, combining them 1/3 at a time until they are well mixed. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 1 hour, then garnish with paprika and chives.
