Perfect Plain Potato Salad

So, I'm really picky when it comes to potato salad. To be honest, I don't love it all that much - some have too much onion, some have too much pickle (or any pickle for that matter), some are made with Miracle Whip (eeeewwww)...You get the idea. So, I had some last summer that I really liked, it's plain, but just up my alley for potato salad. Let me know if you like it!

6 medium whole potatoes - peeled boiled for about 15 minutes. Once they are soft enough to cut (don't overcook), let them cool slightly, and then dice.

1.5 cups Mayo
1 TBS. white vinegar
1 TBS. prepared mustard
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper (fresh ground)
1/2 tsp. dill weed
1/2 white or vidalia onion, finely chopped

Mix the above ingredients together. Add diced potatoes, onions, and if you like celery (I didn't have any in my kitchen this time), you can add 2 stalks, chopped up. Mix it all together to coat. Add 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped. Let it all sit together in the fridge overnight, or at least 4 hours, to enhance flavor. Serve with BBQ!
