Recipe: Horsetaters Salad

I mixed up this potato salad yesterday, for an evening with girl friends. I made a huge batch, and so there was some left over for my husband and boys.. who also fixed big dishes for themselves this week. Guess it's up to me to eat his salad by myself! ;)

dice and boil 5lb red potato, when soft, run under cold water.
dice two scallions, 1 large apple (I like crisp flavors here, like granny smith)
mix 2tbsp mayo with 1 tbsp prepared horseradish, set aside
mix 1tsp celery salt, 1/8th cup (2 tbsp) each: dill, garlic granules (dehydrated garlic, not powder!) and 1 tsp black pepper.

Dump everything in a big bowl, stir, and chill well before serving. Add more dill, horseradish or salt to taste.

This salad is low fat (That's not a lot of mayo for a big salad, a third of it is horseradish, so it's still creamy!), low salt, gluten free.

Should you have leftovers, I recommend this: 1/4 cup salad sauteed in a skillet until the potatoes start to crisp. Crack in an egg, scramble. Ammmaaazing.
