Blue Plate Mondays
OK... so lets give this a whirl shall we? GOOD... I found and "tweaked" this recipe for many moons... It's a summer and people favorite dish. ENJOY... Sorry no pictures...
The BEST Potato Salad
2 pounds of new red potatoes ( personally I use the cheaper big ones and just cut them into huge chunks) and do NOT PEEL them.
1 cup Hellman's mayonnaise (YES you have to use Hellman's)
2 T. Hellman's Dijonnasie Creamy Mustard (I've found that you get just as good of a result using Best Choice brown Mustard)
2 T. chopped fresh dill (you can use dried dill with the same results)
2 T. white vinegar (DO NOT use apple cider vinegar)
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper (I use 1/2 but I like pepper)
1 c. chopped celery
1/2 c. chopped green onions
Boil potato's in salted water until tender. Drain well...note if you chunk up the potatoes before cooking you won't have to later on. DO NOT use white potatoes either! They fall apart and turn to mush where the red ones won't. Also don't peel them the color is wonderful and besides the skins are very thin.In a large bowl, combine mayo, dijonnasie, dill, vinegar, salt and pepper. Stir in warm potatoes (trust me... it works. you'll have a much better tasting potato salad.), celery, and onions. Cover and chill for 2-3 hours to blend flavors.
