This Cajun-inspired potato salad is exactly what you need on your dinner table when you’re in the mood to zest things up with a kick of heat and Creole seasonings.

  • 3 lbs. Yukon gold potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1-1/4 cups light or regular mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 Tbsp. Cajun or Creole mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. Cajun or Creole seasonings

  • 1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper (optional)
