2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups mayonnaise
1 tablespoon vinegar
3/4 cup diced celery
1 cup diced white onion
8 large hard-boiled eggs, chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper +
1/4 teaspoon dried dill, plus extra for garnish

1 Cover potatoes with salted cold water by 2 inches in a 3-quart saucepan. Bring to boil and simmer uncovered until just tender, 20 to 30 minutes, depending on size of potatoes.
