No Potatoe Potatoe Salad

Have you ever began to make potatoe Salad and found you only had one potatoe and not time to run to the store? Here is a way to make a very reasonable substitute.

1 lb Saltines Crumbeled
1 Medium Onion Diced Med
2 Ribs Celery Diced Med
1 Med Bell Pepper Diced Med Optional
2 Tbls Sweet Relish Heaping Tbls
3 Hard Boiled Eggs 2 Diced, 1 sliced for Garnish
3 Tbls Miricle Whip Heaping Tbls
1 Tbls Yel, Mustard Heaping

Crush Saltines to course bits, Add diced Onion and Bell pepper and celery and sweet relish and mix . Add Miricle WHip, or other simular dressing, and mustard and toss to cover all of the saltines and veggies. The Saltines will absorb the moisture from Dressing so you may need to add more for a creamy salad. Add diced eggs and mix into other ingredients. Turn into Serving bowl and slice the third egg over top and add a sprinkle of Fresh Paprika for Decoration.
CHill several hours or in freezer.

This will taste just like real potatoe salad. You can also use crumbled Potatoe Chips or leftover French Frys if need be.

Good Old Mr. Justin Wilson, the Cajun Chef, gave this recipe on his program. He also gave one for making salad with French Fries his wife had made for a Group of teens one rainy day and had a lot of them left. Instead of wasting them, she broke them into smaller pieces and added the rest of the things that make Potato Salad, Potatoe Salad. It went over well and Justin said she made it often from frozen Fries when she was low or out of fresh potatoes. I have made it several times and since it is either cut potatoes or reconstituted potato buds, it is real Potato Salad.

Sounds like a great recipe to try out. I love a good potato salad.

It would be interesting to post recipes that don’t have an ingredient listed in the title, like the
No Potato Potato Salad listed above.

Here’s another:

Peanutless Peanut Flavored Dressing/Sauce
1 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 Tablespoons Chinese hoisin sauce
2 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
Combine ingredients. Mix well.
Tastes like a peanut sauce dressing, but has no peanut products.
Serve on a Chinese Chicken Salad.
