5 stalks of celery

1 medium sweet onion

Grate onion w/small greater. After potatoes cool; peel and slice. Mix potatoes, mayonnaise, celery, grated onion and dill. Add salt & pepper to taste. Chop eggs and add (4) eggs to combined potatoes.

    I’ve had lots of different Potato salads and this one ranked up there with one of the best.

    The recipe started with my mom’s family. My grandmother (grandmere in French), would make this potato salad for most occasions. When I was growing up, we looked forward to Gram’s potato salad.

    I hope you enjoy.
