3 full cups (16 oz) diced cooked potatoes
3/4 cup diced celery
1/4 cup diced red onion
3/4 cup (3 oz) shredded Kraft fat free

1/4 cup Land O Lakes fat free sour cream
2 tsp. dried parsley flakes
1/2 cup chunky salsa (mild, medium or hot)

Ended up making a HUGE pasta salad, enough for both events, Had probably more than I should, but did ok - someone brought some roast beef, so I had a bit of that with it and one cupcake, played volleyball, so I probably played some of it off.
