Ann's yummy Potato Salad

Since it is picnic season and I have had many requests for this recipe. Decided to post it. I have combined a couple of my old potato salad recipes over time and this is what I came up with for cookouts and such. It is hard to beat a good potato salad at a picnic!! Be sure and try my baked bean recipe too. Serves a lot also.

  1. 8 medium potatoes
  2. 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped(sometimes I will use Sweet Vidalias or Walla-Walla's when they are in season)
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  5. 1/3 cup Italian salad dressing
  6. 1/2- 3/4 cup mayonnaise(not Miracle Whip)
  7. 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  8. 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  9. 1 teaspoon celery seed
  10. 2 teaspoons prepared mustard

Peel and cut potatoes into cubes, place in large pan, cover with water and add some salt to water. Cook until tender, drain and cool. Combine cooled potatoes with onion, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add Italian dressing, cover and refrigerate at 3 hours but overnight is better. Just before serving, add mayonnaise, mustard, eggs, celery and celery seed. Mix well. Refrigerate until using. Garnish with fresh parsley and more chopped eggs, if desired. Happy Picnicking!!!!!
