Total time: 1 hour 15 minutes plus 3 hours chilling | Serves 10
  • 2 pounds white boiling potatoes
  • 1/2 pound beets
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup minced red onion
  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 cup Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper

Step 1Boil the potatoes, beets and carrots in separate pots until tender. Drain. Peel and dice the potatoes and beets. Place all the vegetables in a large bowl to cool.

Step 2Add the celery, onion, pickle relish and parsley and mix.

Step 3Combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, olive oil, mustard, salt and pepper. Add to the salad and mix gently with a rubber spatula. Refrigerate the salad for several hours and mix again. The salad tastes best if prepared the night before serving.

Note: This salad develops better flavor if it stands overnight, but the peas and carrots will become colored by the beets so add them just before serving.
