Party Potato Salad

  • 1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salt (gotta go easy here, if you have blood pressure like mine)
  • 3 eggs, hard cooked
  • 7 cups diced, cooked potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 2-oz. jar chopped pimiento, well drained, reserving 1 teaspoon
  • Three 3-inch green onion tops
  • 9-oz. package Green Giant Frozen Early Baby Peas, thawed, drained on paper towels

Line bottom and sides of a 9x5" loaf pan with waxed paper.  In a large bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard and salt.  Slice one hard-cooked egg diagonally to obtain 3 slices.  Set aside for garnish.  Chop remaining eggs.  Gently stir chopped eggs, potatoes, celery, sliced onions and pimiento into dressing mixture.

To create garnish, place 3 reserved egg slices, green onion tops and reserved chopped pimiento in center of prepared pan.  On top of garnish, layer 1/2 of potato salad mixture, then peas, and then remaining potato salad mixture.  Cover.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.  To serve, turn onto platter or serving tray.
