  • Baking sheet


  • 1 medium russet potato (between 6 and 8-ounces, preferably)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery (about 1 celery stalk)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Scrub potato thoroughly with a brush under running water. Pat dry. Prick potato several times with the tines of a fork. Place potato on a baking sheet and bake for 50-60 minutes. (The potato is done when the skin is dry and the inside feels completely soft when pierced). Remove from oven and set aside until cool enough to handle. Cut into 1-inch cubes.
  • In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Add the potato and toss to coat. Add an additional pinch or two of salt and pepper, if needed.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
