Sum-Sum-Summertime Potato Salad

Dream of summer picnics year round with this can't-miss recipe!

Difficulty: **

Ingredients:
  • 5 pounds red potatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c. mustard
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
Method:
  1. Peel and boil potatoes for 20 minutes or until they are easily pierced with a fork. After draining, allow to cool for at least 30 minutes and dice into bite-sized cubes.
  2. Boil eggs for 15 minutes. Cool for at least 30 minutes and dice.
  3. Mix potatoes and eggs together in a large bowl. Blend mayonnaise, mustard, onion, salt and pepper. Slow fold into potato and egg mixture. Cool together for between 30 minutes and overnight before serving.
Tips:
  • This is a very large recipe - meant to serve a larger group at a summer party. To cut down to a family-sized serving, use the following proportions:
    • 1 1/4 lbs. red potatoes
    • 1 egg
    • 1/4 c. mayonnaise
    • 1/4 white onion
    • 1 tbsp. mustard
    • 1/2 green onion, thinly sliced
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • For added zing, consider using spicy mustard.
  • Additional items can be added to suit your taste, including carrots, celery and green peppers. Add them in proportion to the amount of white and green onion that you use.

Serves about 20 (original) or 4-6 (reduced).
