Potato salad seems like one of those things you shouldn’t be able to screw up, but there are some versions that are just not good. Many folks don’t even like potato salad. They think it is weird to eat chunks of cold potatoes, or dislike mayonnaise, or some other reason. I don’t mind it so much, but it isn’t the first thing I reach for at a barbecue or picnic. This one might be tasty. It calls for French dressing mixed with mayo, which is nice variation on the standard mayo/mustard dressing. Give it a try this summer and let us know how it turns out.
4 c cubed boiled potatoes
1 T finely chopped onion & celery
1/2 t salt
1/4 c French dressing – chill 1 – 2 hrs. toss lightly with 1/2 c mayonnaise. Blend in carefully 2 cut up hard boiled eggs. Garnish with parsley & paprika, & cucumbers.
Perfect timing! We have a family cookout coming up and my mother in law had mentioned potato salad. I will be trying this soon! Thank you!
