New York Style
Potato Salad
  New York style potato salad will have you thinking of the Big Apple!

One of a variation of potato salads, in addition to Southern Style and German Style, New York style potato salad will enhance your next picnic and please the palates of everyone who tastes it.  Remember to keep a bowl of ice under your bowl of Potato Salad so that it will not sour.  Enjoy!

Your Host,  Brad

8 medium new potatoes
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp ground pepper
2 celery stalks, chopped fine
4 hard-boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
1 to 1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
3 Tbl cider vinegar

Boil the potatoes just until tender when pierced with a fork.   Drain, and as soon as you are able to handle them, peel and dice (we enjoy our potato salad with the skin still on).  Toss with the lemon juice, oil and salt to taste.  Let cool.

Add the pepper, celery and chopped eggs and toss gently.

Combine 1 cup mayonnaise with vinegar, blend well then toss over the potato salad, gently folding until completely coated.  Add more mayonnaise as necessary.

Based on your individual taste, add chopped onions, peppers, radishes and/or parsley.
