Potato, Apple, and Celery Salad

Potato, Apple, and Celery Salad created by Parsley

This is a great change from regular potato salad! Love it! An English take on a French recipe, now all American!

Ready In:



  • Put the potatoes into a large saucepan of boiling salted waer and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes, until just tender.
  • Drain, leave to cool, then cut the potatoes in half.
  • Put the potatoes into a large salad bowl, add the vinaigrette dressing, and toss gently while the potatoes are still warm.
  • Add the celery, onion, and apples to the potatoes.
  • Mix together gently so that all the ingredients are thoroughly coated with the dressing, then add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • Gently stir in the mayonnaise, taste for seasoning, sprinkle with the chives, and serve immediately.
  • Vinaigrette Dressing: Put all into a screw-top jar and shake until well combined.
  • Makes 2/3 cup.

    This is the first time I made this recipe and it is the first time I had 4 ladies at the pot luck dinner ask for the recipe!! It was a BIG HIT!! I needed this to feed more folks so I doubled the potatos but I only upped the other ingredients by half ( so if it called for 1/2 cup of mayonnaise - I only upped it to 1/4 cup to a total of 3/4 cup ) and 6 celery stalks became 9.... I used red potatoes since I did not use red apples ( used gala ). I found that this process took a lot more time than the time on the recipe - things had to cool - things had to chill. I would suggest this be done on day ahead and that you plan it to take 2 to 3 hours ( with cooking and cooking and chilling ).

    Fantastic. I used green apples and sweet onion, and skipped chives and mustard as I didn't have them but the salad still tasted really great. Highly recommended.

    What a different tasting tater salad! I love all the crunch from the apple and celery. The mixture of the dressing and mayonnaise was very good. Going in the keeper file.

    I followed this recipe as directed except that I didn't have lemon juice so I omitted it along with the sugar. The Dijon that I use is very mild so maybe that is why I didn't find the taste spectacular. I noticed that the mayo didn't blend into the dish well... I'm assuming that it was because of the oil in the potatoes. Next time I will try blending less oil into the mayo or same oil and less mayo... either way making it into a dressing to pour over at the very end. As other reviewers mentioned the addition of the apples was nice. It was like a cross between a potato salad and a waldorf salad. Depending which direction you are leaning you could either add boiled eggs or walnuts to it very easily.

    I Also used red potatoes, could not find the new taters as directed in the recipes. Didn't have any chives either. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly Turned out great & everyone loved it. A very nice change from regular potato salad.
