This is the easy way out for potato salad, when you're not in the mood to cut up potatoes. This was demonstrated at the Southern Living Cooking Show in Orlando a few years ago.

Inow give this a full five stars; the submitter agreed with my earlier assessment that the onions are a needed ingredient and added them to the recipe. Give this one a try. This recipe was a hit at a potluck. I used the automatic calculator to make 24 servings, and it was perfect.
