    Cook potatoes in large pot of boiling water for about 20 minutes or until just tender. Drain and cool. Cut into 1 inch pieces. In large serving bowl,( I use my trifle bowl ) gently toss potatoes,pickles if using, celery, red onion, eggs, peppers if using, green onions with the dressing. You can garnish with some extra green onions. Chill until serving.

    I sometimes add about 1/2 tsp of prepared horse radish it a bit of zing... Double the dressing recipe for a larger crowd. I usually make a 5 pound bag of potatoes when making this. Enjoy!
