Creamy Potato Salad - 3 Points

Recipe By : BH&G New Dieter's Cookbook
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Potatoes Salads

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 medium potatoes*(1 1/4 pounds total)
1 cup sliced celery
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons dill or sweet pickle relish
1/2 cup light mayonnaise dressing
1/2 cup light dairy sour cream
2 tablespoons skim milk
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1 hard-boiled egg -- chopped
lettuce leaves -- optional

1. Scrub potatoes. In a large covered saucepan cook potatoes in BOILING WATER for 20 to 25 minutes or just until tender. Drain well; cool slightly.
2. Peel and cube potatoes. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in celery, onion, and pickle relish.
3. In a small mixing bowl stir together the mayonnaise dressing, sour cream, milk, mustard, salt, and celery seed. Pour over potatoes. Toss lightly to coat potatoes. Carefully fold in chopped egg.
4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 or up to 24 hours. If desired, serve in a lettuce-lined bowl. Makes 8 servings.

*NOTE: Waxy potatoes, such as long whites and round reds, have a moist, smooth texture and will hold their shape after cooking. Tiny new potatoes are usually just young round reds and will also work well in salads.

In fact, we offer this dish daily in JO's Kitchen Cafe, where it's won our male customers' seal of approval again and again! By the way, I call this "classic" because it's prepared the old-fashioned way, with a hard-boiled egg, just the way Daddy liked it."

NOTES : If you have a large strainer on hand, it's easy to blanch veggies. Just put them in the strainer; once the water's boiling, lower the strainer into the water. When the cooking time is up, run the veggies, still in the strainer, under cold water (or immerse them in a bowl of ice water).

One 1-lb bag of shredded cabbage & carrot blend

1 tbs. cider vinegar
1 tsp. Dijon mustard

In a small bowl, mix the mayo, vinegar & mustard. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, raisins & apples. Toss with the dressing. Refrigerate, covered, until the flavors are blended -- at lease 1 hour.

Angry Potato Salad

Got this recipe from my ww leader.

9 med. chopped potatos
1 Can 1/2 fat celery soup
3/4 C no fat mayo
1/4 C Vinegar
2 celery stalks
2 chopped green onions
2 hard boiled eggs

Mix soup, mayo and vinegar and 1/2 tsp pepper. Mix thouroughly with chopped ingredients.

10 servings 1 C = 4 points.

I always add a little mustard when I make potato salad just to give it some zing. I would mix it with the soup, mayo and vinegar.
