This is salad I make when I am serving a large crowd, it feeds about 40 to 50 people depending how many other sides you are serving. For my American neighbors the Best Food brand mayonnaise is the same as our Canadian Hellman’s brand mayonnaise. Serve this salad cold and do not leave this out at room temperature for any longer than 2 hours.
10 pounds cooked, chopped potatoes
12 eggs (chopped)
2 carrots (shredded)
5 cups Hellman’s mayonnaise (more or less)
2 tablespoons dried dill weed
2 tablespoons old fashioned grainy mustard
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 small onion, finely chopped
Mix together all the ingredients, using only 4 cups of mayonnaise adding more of the mayonnaise as needed.Refrigerate for a few hour before serving. I make this in the morning to allow the flavours to meld together nicely.
