BURKSMOKE (Randy) is going to cook for a crowd and is planning on serving potato salad as one of the side dishes. Being the REALLY nice guy that you all have learned to love (cough,cough) and appreciate (Okay!!I hear them eyeballs rolling) I though I would dig in my book of recipes and help a Brother out.

Randy, this recipe will feed forty so I hope that it will be plenty.

20 pounds of white all-purpose potatoes
24 eggs
4 cups of celery, finely chopped
2 cups of green onion, sliced-white and green part
1 quart plus 3 cups of Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
1 cup of yellow mustard
1/2 cup sweet or dill pickle relish

In large pot boil potatoes until fork tender, drain off water and allow to cool. Boil eggs to Hard boiled stage, place under cold running water until cool.

Peel and cut potatoes in to cubes (I prefer not to peel my 'taters). Shell hard boiled eggs and dice. Mix potatoes and eggs together.

In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour over potato and egg mixture, stir in gentely but completely. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serves 40 people.

Randy, if you are going to serve your ribs with a sweet 'que sauce and since most likely your beans will be sweet also, you may want to use a dill pickle relish in this recipe to offset the sugars that are in the other two dishes.

Hey Dutch,
Thanks for the recipe. I also have a big group over occasionally so I'll definitely save the recipe.

Thanks Dutch

I'm going to use this recipe for certain. Since last post I've learned I have to another feed next week. So your post came just in time.
