- 5 lb
- 1 large
- sweet onion finely chopped
- celery stalks including leafy tops finely chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 stick
- butter or margarine, melted
- good quality mayonnaise (i prefer hellmans, but kraft works as well)
- hard boiled eggs (optional)
1Place potatoes in a steamer basket over simmering water. Steam until just tender. Allow to sit until cool enough to handle.
2Peel potatoes. Cut into 1/4 - 1/2 inch cubes. Place in large bowl. (You should almost be able to peel them with your finger nails.)
3Mix in the celery and onion. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour melted butter over top and gently toss to combine and separate the potato cubes.
4When the butter has been absorbed, add enough mayonnaise to coat the salad. Usually 2 - 3 cups works for me. Add chopped hard boiled eggs if using.
Chill at least 1 hour until ready to serve.
