Savory potato salad

6 medium potatoes (about 2 pounds)
2 stalks celery, finely chopped

1/4 cup red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
1 egg, hard boiled, chopped
6 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1 teaspoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dill weed, dried

Wash potatoes, cut in half, and place them in cold water in a saucepan. Cook covered over medium heat for 25 to 30 minutes or until tender.

Drain and dice potatoes when cool. Add vegetables and egg to potatoes and toss.
