  • Summary

    I have made this many times over the years for large gatherings, everyone loves it and I am always asked for the recipe --- the dressing is wonderful with potatoes or cooked pasta, you may of coarse double the amounts to feed more people --- all ingredients may be adjusted to suit taste, throw in some cooked ham or bacon if desired, plan ahead this salad must chill for at least 3 or more hours before serving, the longer chilling time the better! --- if making the potato salad and prefer a creamier salad then double the dressing amount

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 lbs cooked cubed potatoes (or can use 3 cups cooked macaroni or small shell pasta drained)
    • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
    • 1 small celery rib, finely diced
    • 4 green onions, finely chopped
    • 1 1/2 cups finely cubed cheddar cheese
    • 4 -5 hard-boiled eggs, chopped (more eggs sliced in wedges to garnish around the bowl if desired)
    • 1/2 cup chopped sweet yum-yum pickle (optional, yum-yum pickles are sliced sweet sandwich pickles)
    • 6 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
    • 3/4 cup prepared ranch salad dressing
    • 3/4 cup mayonnaise (or use 1/4 cup each mayonnaise and sour cream, or to taste) or 1/2 cup salad dressing (or use 1/4 cup each mayonnaise and sour cream, or to taste)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard or 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
    • 1/2-1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional but good to add in)
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper (to taste, I use seasoned salt)
