  • 3 pounds small potatoes, small red or small yukon gold
  • 2 Tablespoons Kosher salt, for the boiling water
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • ½ cup chopped fresh dill
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon kosher salt, (for the dressing) Add more if you desire after tasting the mixed dressing.
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ½ cup chopped red onion


  • To cook the potatoes place the unpeeled potatoes in a large pot of water, add 2 Tablespoons of salt and bring to a boil.
  • Once the water is boiling, turn the heat down. Simmer the potatoes for about 15 to 20 minutes. Check to make sure the potatoes are done before draining in a colander.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, make the dressing by whisking together the mayonnaise, buttermilk, mustards and dill.
  • Cut the potatoes in quarters or in half.
  • Place the cut potatoes in a large bowl.
  • While the potatoes are still warm, pour enough dressing over them to moisten.
  • Add the celery, red onion and more salt and pepper (if desired) to taste.
  • Gently toss to make sure all ingredients are combined well. Cover and refrigerate. If you have the time, let the salad sit in the frig before serving as the flavors will all blend together.
  • Serve cold or at room temperature and Enjoy!


Gr8 Do Ahead Tip:
Potato Salad is best when made several hours or a day ahead of time. This allows the flavors to fully develop.
