  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

  1. Cook potatoes in boiling water to cover and salted with 1 teaspoon salt 40 minutes or until tender; drain and cool 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Stir together mayonnaise, mustard, pepper, and remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in a large bowl.
