Transcript:Potato SaladHi, I'm Rachel Edelman, for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make a homemade potato salad.
Potato Salad IngredientsYou will need:
- 4 potatoes
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup of onion
- 1/2 cup of celery
- 1 sprig of fresh dill
- 1/4 cup of mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons mustard
- salt and pepper
Boil the Potatoes and EggsFirst fill two pots with water, one pot for the potatoes and one for eggs. Bring the water to a boil. You can also salt the water for extra flavor and faster boiling.
Meanwhile, peel four potatoes. Use a cutting board and sharp knife and cut the potatoes in quarters. Boil the potatoes until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Now drain the potatoes.
Boil three eggs for 10 minutes and cool on a plate. If you don t like eggs or someone has a food allergy, you can always leave these out. When the eggs are finished cool them on a plate.
Chop Potato Salad IngredientsNow peel and chop half a cup of onion, chop half a cup of celery.
Once the potatoes are cool, cut them into smaller, bite size pieces.
Place the potatoes and vegetables in a large bowl. The bigger, the more room you'll have room to stir. Place one small sprig of dill into the bowl.
Carefully remove the shells and chop the eggs into small pieces. Add the eggs to the potatoes and vegetables.
Combine Potato Salad IngredientsAdd a quarter of cup mayonnaise and 2 tablespoons of mustard to the mixture. Gently stir. For a creamier consistency, add more mayo and mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste.
When making potato salad you can add your favorite ingredients from scallions to green beans. Enjoy!
