Because it seems to appeal to so many, this creamy salad is one of my favorite crowd-size recipes. I've taken it to potlucks and picnics...and it's always a hit.


  • 5 pounds red potatoes
  • 4 celery ribs, sliced
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons dill weed
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 bottle (16 ounces) cucumber ranch salad dressing


  1. Place potatoes in a large kettle; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Drain and cool. Cut potatoes into small cubes.
  2. In a large serving bowl, combine the potatoes, celery, onions, dill and salt. In a small bowl, whisk mayonnaise and salad dressing until blended. Pour over potato mixture and stir gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours before serving.
