"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:

Salt and pepper to taste (about 1 teaspoons salt)

Directions:
Peel and cube the potatoes while they are still warm, add the onion, vinegar, dill pickle juice, salt and pepper. I find that combining the spices with the vinegar and dill pickle juice helps distribute the flavor better. Refrigerate at least one hour. Add the celery, dill pickle and chopped eggs. Mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream and mustard and add to the potato mixture. You may need to add more mayo and mustard to taste. Top with sliced egg and sprinkle with paprika.
