Microwavable Potato Salad

This is a quick, traditional potato salad that is so easy to make! White, red, or Yukon Gold potatoes are all good choices for this recipe (russet potatoes are not a great choice because they may fall apart). I don't peel my potato, but you can if you prefer. Please be sure to read the label to ensure your choice of Italian salad dressing is gluten-free.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium white or red potato
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon mayonnaise
  • sprinkle of salt and pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian salad dressing
  • 1/2 hard-boiled egg, chopped
  • 1 Pinch of parsley

Directions

Wash potato and pierce several times with a fork (to allow steam to escape).

Microwave on high for 2 ½ minutes, or until potato is tender.

Carefully peel potato, if desired, and cut into small cubes.

Add remaining ingredients and mix well, but gently.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.
