    I spell it the way Quale did.

    Two large potatoes
    4 eggs, hard boiled
    1/2 red bell peper
    1/4 large yellow onion
    2 celery stalks
    4 slices of turkey breast
    honey and yellow mustard
    sweet relish
    mayo.

    While boiling the eggs and potatoes, I ran the pepper, onion and celery through the mini cuisinart veg chopper and chopped them real fine. Also take the turkey breast slices and chop that up very small

    After the potatoes and eggs are done, peel and slice both of them very small.
    add the onion, pepper, and all the other stuff.


    I like to serve it warm, but this makes enough for four meals for one guy. So into the fridge it goes. It is still good cold.

    Since I see no copy write I am liberating this recipe and telling my wife I thought of it.

    I prefer using celery seed in place of celery, and I make a sauce for potato salad.

    I use red wine vinegar a little mustard and never ever use mayonnaise for anything hate the stuff. I use miracle whip instead, oh and a little sugar and I mix the celery seed with the sauce

    Asian Potato Salad


    12 whole scallions, plus 5 tablespoons minced scallion, white part only (divided use)
    1/2 cup canola oil
    1/4 cup Asian sesame oil
    2 pounds new potatoes
    5 tablespoons minced prosciutto
    3 tablespoons rice vinegar
    3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup chopped cashews, toasted

    Trim the roots and tough green tops off the whole scallions. Using a large, wide-bladed knife, flatten the trimmed scallions on a work surface.

    Combine canola and sesame oils in a skillet over high heat. Cover and cook the oils just until they begin to smoke, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat, add the flattened scallions to the pan, cover and let stand for 30 minutes.

    That sounds good.

    I just bought some at the store. it never turns out good for me when I try to make it. I like the kind that has sliced radishes and celery in it.

    I also like this pea salad my mom used to make, it was seven layer. Mmm mm

    Sounds yummy. The only thing I would add is to sprinkle a bit of white vinegar on the cubes of potatoes while they are still a bit warm, and then let them cool before adding the other ingredients.

    There's an "e" at the ended of "potato" only if it is plural, followed by an "s". ;)
