2 pounds potatoes
1⁄4 cup yellow onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste
1⁄2 cup Italian dressing
1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
1⁄4 cup scallions, chopped (optional)
3 hardboiled eggs, chopped
Wash potatoes and place in a large pot with the skins still on. Add enough cold water to cover the potatoes. Season with the salt and bring to boil.
Boil uncovered until potatoes are tender (about 45 minutes). Let them cool, and then take the skins off and cut the potatoes into cubes. Combine the potatoes in a bowl with the onions, salt, pepper and Italian dressing. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
After refrigerating, stir in the mayonnaise, eggs and celery. Keep refrigerated until ready to eat.
