Great Grandma's Potato Salad

I have tried every potato salad around but I keep coming back to my version of my mother’s (a brand new great grandma!!) potato salad
There seems to be the theory that waxy potatoes are best for potato salad, but i disagree, I really like the russets in this salad.

Instructions

  1. 1In a large pot of salted cold water, bring potatoes to boil and then gently simmer potatoes until soft
  2. 2While potatoes are simmering, whisk mustard, vinegar and garlic together, season with salt and pepper, add oil to make a dressing.
  1. 1When potatoes are done, drain and put back into pot and place pot back on burner that has been turned off to evaporate some of the left over moisture. Mix in celery and onions, season with salt and pepper.
  2. 2When potatoes are still hot/warm, pour dressing over and mix in. Some of the potatoes will break apart, this is fine. Add mayo a TB by TB until potatoes are covered evenly, add as much or as little to your taste. Adjust seasonings
  3. 3Chill before serving
