Our Classic Potato Salad

My husband requested this potato salad after a business trip to Australia. It has the classic ingredients of celery, red onion, and dill. This is the simple potato salad that many of us had in our childhood. The dill is optional.

1 lb. potatoes, peeled and cut into ~3/4 inch chunks
½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup celery, chopped
½ cup red onion, chopped
3 Tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper, freshly ground
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 10 minutes until potatoes are tender. Drain and cool until warm.

Add mayonnaise, celery, red onion, and fresh dill to the potatoes and toss gently. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with parsley and serve warm or refrigerate for later.

Serves ~ 4
