Marinating the potatoes in pickle juice is the key to this salad's flavor.


Boil potatoes and eggs in salted water just until potatoes are tender, 1215 minutes; drain. Set eggs aside to cool. Toss hot potatoes with pickle juice in a bowl, then cool to room temperature. Peel eggs, slice into ¼-inch-thick rounds, and add to potatoes.

Combine mayonnaise, gherkins, celery, scallions, parsley, mustard, and sugar in a second bowl; season with salt and pepper. Pour dressing over potatoes and eggs; stir gently to coat. Serve salad cold or at room temperature.
