French Dressing Potato Salad Recipe

Hi everyone! It's Sheena's sister Shannon here with an amazing potato salad recipe!  Back when I lived in Michigan, one of our neighbor families had a Labor Day party every year.  The husband's mother made the most amazing potato salad I've ever tasted and brought it with to the party every year!!  Now that I'm back in Minnesota, I was going through serious withdrawals when this summer rolled around which starts potato salad season in my house!  This is my take on this wonderful salad!  I hope you love it as much as we do!!  The recipe makes quite a big batch, because if I'm going through all the work of making potato salad... we better have lots of leftovers!  One more thing.... I do have a new-ish photography blog, In Blurred Focus, featuring mostly on rural Minnesota... I'd love it if you checked it out (you can subscribe by email as well)!!  (By the way, Sheena's food photography skills are amazing.... mine, not so much. I guess we all have our gifts, right?)




 

French Dressing Potato Salad (click here to print recipe)

What you need:
5 lbs-red skinned potatoes, peeled, cubed and boiled
16 eggs, boiled, peeled and diced
3 bunches of green onions, chopped
French-style dressing, approximately 1/3-1/2 bottle (I used Western 16 ounce bottle)
1 1/2 cups mayo
1 cup Miracle Whip
4 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of yellow mustard
3 tablespoons of milk

Directions:
Once you've boiled the potatoes, put them in a bowl and pour the French dressing over the potatoes and toss to coat.  Put this mixture into the refrigerator for 3-4 hours, or overnight works too.  After your potatoes are cool and marinated with the French dressing, add the eggs and green onions.  Mix together the mayo, Miracle Whip, sugar, mustard and milk, pour over the potatoes, mix gently and refrigerate. 

Be prepared to smile... or as my daughter says "Mom, I'm dying a little bit on the inside!"

  2. Hi Shannon, I'm a new subscriber to your blog and want to try this great looking potato salad recipe.
    Since there are a few different sizes of bottles, I was wondering what size bottle of French dressing did you use half the bottle of ?
    Thanks!
