Boil the peeled and cubed potatoes until fork tender. While the potatoes boil, sweat the onions and the celery in butter until soft and translucent; do not brown. Drain potatoes. While still warm, add the ingredients slowly, being sure not to mash the potatoes. Mix thoroughly. Serve warm or cold.
My nana used to make this in the summertime and we would eat it while it was still warm; it is one of my favorite recipes.
