Glen's Potato Salad

This is my version of potato salad that I got from a newspaper many years ago. The Italian Dressing in this potato salad makes it unique as far as potato salads go.  I have also experimented with different brands of Italian dressing and concluded that none compared with Wishbone® Italian dressing. I like mustard in potato salad. You can add more or less, or leave it out entirely.

If you wish, you can make Glen's Potato Salad easier and faster. Here is a tip I got from Rachel Ray. You can peel the potatoes, cut them into cubes, and boil them until they are done, about 5 or 6 minutes. Spread them on a paper towel on a cookie sheet until they are cooled and somewhat dry. I still prefer to boil the unpared potatoes first if you have time.

What You Need

5 or 6 medium size potatoes
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup Wishbone® Italian dressing
2 to 3 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon mustard
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 hard boiled eggs, cut up
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 Claussen® Kosher Dills, chopped
Celery seed

Here's How

Wash potatoes and place, unpared, into a large pot. Cover with salted water and bring to a boil. Cook 30 to 35 minutes, or until tender. Drain, cool, and peel. Cut potatoes into cubes and combine in bowl with Italian dressing, onion, vinegar, and mustard. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight. Just before serving, add mayonnaise and toss until potatoes are coated. Stir in celery, pickle, eggs, and celery seed.
