In a large pot over medium-high heat, boil potatoes (with skins on) just until barely done or tender when pierced with a fork; drain and cool slightly.
As soon as you can handle the potatoes, peel and cut into chunks; place into a large bowl.
Cut onion into quarters and slice thin; add to potatoes along with apple, celery, green olives, and sweet pickles.
In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, cider vinegar, and steak sauce or soy sauce. Spoon over potato mixture; mix gently.
Season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight before serving.
