Christmas Eve Potato Salad


“I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!” –Longfellow

I LOVE THIS SALAD.  I don’t what the magical combination is in this salad but it’s a favorite.  I got this recipe from a sweet little lady named Patty, who lived next door to my friends, the Bernhisels, a long time ago.  She brought this wonderful potato salad to their annual neighborhood Christmas party every year and I just thought it was the best potato salad I’d ever tasted.


  • 12 Idaho potatoes oiled, cooled, peeled and diced
  • 12 boiled eggs
  • 2 green peppers chopped
  • 1 bunch celery chopped fine
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 12 small radishes

Mix with Kraft Miracle Whip (use about 3/4ths of the jar).  Salt and pepper to taste.
