  • 3 large
    potatoes (golds, russets your choice)
  • 3 large
    hard boiled eggs
  • 1/4 medium
    sweet onion
  • 1 stalk(s)
    celery chopped
  • 2 large
    heaping tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp

  • 1/2 tsp
  • 1/4 tsp
  • 2-3 pkg
    artificial sweetner

How to Make Maddy's Amazing Potato Salad


  1. Boil 3 Large whole potatoes (skin still on) until they are slightly tender. I like russets and they hold together well. 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 1/4 sweet onion into thin pieces. Add both to the bowl that has the potatoes and eggs in it.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, dill flakes 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.
