-5 lbs red potatoes, with skins on
-2 cups mayonnaise (more or less depending on how you like it, Do NOT use fat free or low fat)

-1/4 cup yellow mustard
-2 tablespoons cider vinegar

Peel the potatoes and boil them in the saucepan. Boil for twenty minutes or when you are sure that they have gone tender. Use a fork to judge the softness. They should not be mushy and be firm to the taste.
After draining the hot water, slice up these potatoes or cube them. If you allow them to cool, they will be diced easily.
Mix all other ingredients mentioned above in a separate mixing bowl and add them to the potatoes. Mix well together. Refrigerate for two hours before serving so that the flavors blend in with each other well.
