Recipe: Potato Salad


  • 5 lbs Red Potatoes
  • 1 cup Scallions (chopped)
  • 1 cup Celery (chopped)
  • 3/4 cup Red Onion (small slices)

Recipe: Potato salad dressing


  • 2 cups Mayonnaise

  1. Place 5 pounds of red potatoes into a large pot. Add enough water to submerge the potatoes, and bring the water to a boil and boil for twenty minutes.
  2. While the potatoes are boiling, chop celery, red onion, and parsley, and mix the potato salad dressing.
  3. After 20 minutes, test a potato by sticking a fork through it. If the fork goes-in easily the potato is done. If not let the potatoes continue to boil until done.

  5. Add seasoning and potato salad dressing and mix together.
