  • 4 russet potatoes washed and peeled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup dill pickles
  • 4 green onions
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp grainy mustard see notes
  • 2 tbsp sriracha see notes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes


  • Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to boil and cook until fork tender. This would take about 20 minutes. Once the potatoes are cooked, let them cool.
  • Meanwhile, boil the eggs until hard boiled.
  • Chop the cool potatoes and place them in a large bowl. Chop the eggs as well and add them to the potatoes.
  • Chop the dill pickles and the green onions and mix them with the potatoes and eggs.
  • In a medium sized bowl mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard and sriracha. Season with salt, pepper and chili pepper flakes. Add the dressing to the salad and stir well to combine.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.


  • Instead of grainy mustard, you can use regular mustard or dijon mustard. 
  • Taste the salad before refrigerating and make sure it's spicy enough. If needed, add more sriracha.
