  • 3 pounds small white potatoes
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk well shaken
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 1/2 cup fresh dill chopped
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 1/2 cup celery chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onion chopped


  • Place the potatoes and 2 tablespoons of salt in a large pot of water. Bring the water to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until the potatoes are barely tender when pierced with a knife. Drain the potatoes in a colander, then place the colander with the potatoes over the empty pot and cover with a clean, dry kitchen towel. Allow the potatoes to steam for 15 to 20 minutes.
  •  Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the mayo, buttermilk, Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, dill, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Set aside.
  • When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in quarters or in half, depending on their size. Place the cut potatoes in a large bowl. While the potatoes are still warm, pour enough dressing over them to moisten. Add the celery and red onion, 2 teaspoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Toss well, cover, and refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend. Serve cold or at room temperature.
