REC: KISS Potato Salad aka Long Island Deli Potato Salad
Long Island deli recipe - one of the best I've ever had..

My Dad begged for this recipe when the deli
owner was retiring. An example of just how noble
begging can be :-) It's a basic "German hot potato
salad, cooled and mayo added. very simple and
very easy and It always gets raves.

2 lbs potatoes boiled in their skin and

1 cup white vinegar
1 1/3 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1 onion chopped
salt & pepper to taste

combine brine ingredients and boil for 5 min.
slice potatoes thin and pour hot brine over them.
Let them marinate for 24 hours. Drain in a collander
but do not drain dry. Do this over a pot so if they are
too dry you have extra marinade to add back into the salad.
Add Helman's mayo, enough to make it as creamy as you like.
The trick here is to use only Helman's, also
under the "best foods" label in other parts
of the

KISS = keep it simple stupid! something I wish
I did more often ;-)

"poke" too many, they get soggy. (NT) (Randi/Or)
