  • Large pot
  • Large bowl
  • Large wooden spoon or silicone spatula
  • Food processor


  • 3 pounds small red potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon salt + 1 teaspoon
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • ½ cup green onions roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons capers optional
  • 4 hard boiled eggs yolks only
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup dill fresh, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper freshly ground


  • In large pot of salted water, boil potatoes 20-30 minutes. Potatoes should be soft enough to slide off the tines of a fork, and the skins will begin to break away from the potato when cut. Drain, then cut potatoes into halves, then quarters. Place in bowl and toss with vinegar.
  • Add green onions and capers (optional) to food processor. Process until finely chopped.
  • Add hard boiled yolks, sour cream, mayonnaise, mustard, dill, pepper, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Process until creamy.
  • Pour egg yolk mixture over the potatoes. Stir and mash potatoes with back of spoon or potato masher. I prefer some mashed potatoes with some large chunks of potatoes mixed in. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours or overnight, then serve.


  • Gluten free: Ensure Dijon mustard does not contain wheat or wheat byproducts.
  • Potatoes: Red potatoes highly recommended, otherwise use waxy potatoes such as new potatoes and fingerlings. Do not use starchy potatoes such as russet.
