potato salad

we are having a family dinner today and i am taking potato salad. now i realize everyone has a recipe for this side dish but i am including my take on it because this is my most requested recipe. my mother always made a cooked mayonnaise on the stove so i doctored Hellman's mayo with a pennsylvania dutch twist. this recipe will serve a there will be 12 of us
potato salad

5 pounds of potatoes (cooked in skins,cooled,peeled and diced)
1 large bunch green onions
2 cups chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped parsley

remember: potatoes are still cooking as they cool. after boiling 20 minutes, stick a fork into them . if there is no resistance, they are done. while the potatoes are cooling, chop the other ingedients.

cut potatoes into a dice and place in a large container with other chopped ingredients
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
pour over potaoes and mix 

the olive oil and vinegar will soak into the potatoes. set aside and make the dressing.

1 heaping cup hellman's light mayonaisse
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
fresh ground pepper

mix ingredients and pour over potaoes and mix throughly

taste and adjust salt
