No one will miss the mayo in this zesty potato salad, and being mayo-free means it holds up at an outdoor party. We use lemon juice, tangy vinegar, sliced cornichons, and plenty of fresh dill to give sliced eggs and chunky potatoes a lively zing in this tasty side dish.

  • In a large pot, cover potatoes by at least 2 inches of water; season generously with salt. Bring to a boil; cook until potatoes are easily pierced with the tip of a knife, 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, stir mustard and oil into shallot mixture; season with salt and pepper. Drain potatoes; add to bowl while still warm, gently stirring until evenly coated in dressing. Let stand until no longer warm, about 1 hour, or cover and refrigerate up to 2 days. Before serving, gently fold in cornichons, dill, and eggs.
