Ingredients

  • 5-6 medium red potatoes should come out to around 3 lbs
  • 3 large hardboiled eggs
  • 6 strips bacon or more.. I won't judge
  • 1/2 cup green onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 4 oz fresh dill
  • 1/2 cup light mayonaisse the "light" offsets the bacon.
  • 3 tbsp course grained dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk whole milk works too
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Instructions

  • Dice your potatoes into 1 inch cubes. I find that slicing the potatoes into 1 inch strips, stacking them, then slicing into 1 inch strips across cubes much faster.
  • Place cubed potatoes in a pot with water. The water only needs to be 1 inch higher than the potatoes. Bring to a boil, then let it cook for about 15 minutes.
  • While the potatoes are boiling, let's begin cooking the bacon...
  • If you don't have hard-boiled eggs, now is a a good time to get those going too!
  • Chop the fresh dill
  • Add the mayo, buttermilk, mustard, dill, salt and pepper into a container
  • Whisk together until its all mixed together
  • Check your potatoes. Can you easily stick a fork in them? Then they're done!
  • Strain the potatoes, then cover with a towel letting them sit for another 10 minutes or so.
  • While the potatoes are sitting, chop the bacon into small pieces
  • Chop the green onions and celery
  • Chop the hardboiled eggs
  • Dump the potatoes into a large bowl and add about half of the dressing into the bowl. Stir together
  • Go ahead and add the rest
  • Then add the bacon, green onions and celery!
  • Place in a refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
