What I Eat

Potato Salad

Serves: 6

6 medium sized russet potatoes
6 eggs
6 celery stalks
1 cup mayo (I like the brand with the tangy zip)
½ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons skim milk
2 tablespoons yellow mustard

Wash and peel potatoes. Cut each potato into 16 chunks. Put potatoes in a large pan and cover with water. Bring water to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes, or until potatoes are soft. Drain. Spread potatoes out on a cookie sheet to cool. Fill a pan with enough water to cover eggs. Place the pan on the stove and turn the heat to the highest setting. When the water starts to boil, turn the heat down to the medium high setting so the eggs don’t break during cooking. Boil for 10 minutes. Drain. Put the eggs back in the pan and shake until the shells are cracked all over. Fill the pan with cold water and let the eggs sit in the water for 5 minutes. Peel eggs. The shells should come off easily. Rinse eggs to remove any remaining small pieces of shell. Slice eggs with an egg slicer. Wash and chop celery. Mix the potatoes, eggs, and celery with the mayo, onion powder, pepper, milk, and 2 tablespoons mustard. Refrigerate before serving. Have with a glass of milk.
