Old Fashioned American Potato Salad
Author: Ciao Chow Linda
Ingredients
  • 3 pounds red skinned potatoes, boiled and peeled (optional)
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • ½ cup red onion, minced
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped finely
  • ¼ cup sweet pickle relish
  • a big handful of minced parsley - maybe ½ cup or so
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (I like Hellman's)
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
Instructions
  1. Boil the potatoes until they are fork tender, but not falling apart in the water.
  2. Test by pricking with a knife to see if they're cooked.
  3. If they're small, they shouldn't take longer than 15-20 minutes.
  4. Drain the hot water and cover with cold water.
  5. When cool, peel the potatoes (if desired, if not, leave the skins on)
  6. Cut into chunks (not too large, and not too small)
  7. Place the potatoes in a bowl, with the rest of the ingredients.
  8. Mix thoroughly and serve cold or at room temperature.
