Jellied Potato Salad Recipe

Step 1

Soak gelatin in cold water for 2 minutes. Add boiling water and stir to dissolve gelatin. Chill until it becomes the consistency of egg white.

Step 2

Combine potatoes, onion, ham, cheese and egg. In a separate bowl mix vinegar, pepper, celery seed, mayonnaise, mustard and yogurt. Add to potato mixture and toss to coat well.

Step 3

Beat gelatin mixture until fluffy. Combine with potato mixture and pour into 2-3 cup mold or bowl. Chill to set. Unmold and garnish with sliced cucumber on lettuce leaves.

Serving suggestion: Terrific picnic item. Take along a few bread sticks and a raw vegetable for munching.
