Perfect Potater Salad

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 264


2 russet potatoes peeled and cubed
2 green onions sliced
1 stalk celery
4 hard boiled eggs
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon prepared mustard


1. Cut the potatoes into 1/2 inch slices, then cut each slice into 1/2 inch cubes. 2. Slice the green onions. 3. Cut the celery lengthwise into 1/8 inch strips, then cut each strip into 1/8 inch pieces. 4. Place the eggs in a large bowl and loosely chop with a fork. 5. Fill a 2 quart pot about two" thirds with water, add the potatoes, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer the potatoes 30 to 45 minutes until tender (see the important tip on the previous page). Drain in a colander. 6. Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix gently with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined.
7. Serve immediately or place in a covered container and refrigerate.

Important tip
The secret to making perfect potato salad is cooking the potatoes to perfection—in other words, they should be tender. To test for doneness, after the potatoes have been cooking for 30 minutes, remove a cube every 2 or 3 minutes, let it cool, then bite into it. If it’s hard or crunchy, the potatoes are undercooked; if it’s mushy, the potatoes are overcooked; and if it’s tender, the potatoes are ready.

Important tip
When stirring the ingredients in Step 6, it is best to use a wooden spoon. The sharp edge of a steel spoon can cut or chop the cooked potato cubes.
