6 medium potatoes
1 small onion, chopped fine
1 cup celery, chopped
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon salt

I read the other reviews on what to do with the mayo so I proceeded that way. Very good recipe. The dressing isn't too sweet or too tangy, just the way I like my potato salad. If you like it with more tang add more mustard but I would taste the dressing before you add it.

I haven't tried this recipe, but usually you would Refrigerate until cool, then stir in the mayonnaise.

I would assume they meant for you to add the mayonaise when when you beat in the butter. Try that.
