How To Make maddy's "ask for more!" potato salad

  • 1
    Boil 5 Large whole potatoes (skin still on) until they are slightly tender. I like red potatoes as they have a light flavorful taste. I stick a fork in them to see if it slides in easily, and then they are done. Boil 3 large eggs, and then set the whole potatoes and eggs in the refrigerator for an hour until they are cool.
  • 2
    Peel the potatoes after they are cool. I scrape them using the back of a butter knife as the skins will easily peel right off that way using that method. Cut the potatoes down the middle length wise, and then slice thinly. (about 1/8 inch slices.) Put them in a bowl.
  • 3
    Peel the eggs and then slice using an egg slicer or knife until they are about 1/8 of an inch thick. Add them to the bowl.
  • 4
    Chop a stalk of celery into small pieces and slice 1/2 sweet onion that has been sliced into thin pieces. Add both to the bowl that has the potatoes and eggs in it.
  • 5
    In a separate bowl, mix the rice vinegar, mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, dill flakes, celery seed and 2-3 packs of artificial sweetener until combined. I use artificial sweetener to avoid the grainy taste of regular sugar. Add this mixture to the bowl with the other ingredients and stir until blended.
  • 6
    You can add more or less artificial sweetener depending on your taste. This recipe tastes best with the dill and sweeter have the perfect savory/sweet taste.
  • 7
    Serve at room temperature.
