Potato Salad Unverified!

This is a difficult recipe to decipher. The back of the card includes a number of repeated ingredients and the front's last line reads either "From pg Good Seasons Dressing - [obsc] 1T French" or maybe "1 pg" or maybe "2 pg" -- hard to say if its crossed out or not. The rest seems to indicate Italian dressing, so that's what's left below.


  • 2 pts salad greens
  • 4-5 medium potatoes
  • unknown amount (1 Tbsp? 11Tbsp?) Italian dressing
  • 1/3 cup sliced olives
  • 1/3 cup green onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup bacon bits
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups slided mushrooms

Orange vinegar

  • 1 quart white vinegar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • orange peel from one orange


Boil potatoes until tender and allow to cool. Slice and marinate for 1-2 hours in Italian dressing. Assemble remaining ingredients and coat with marinade dressing.

An additional note reads "use orange vinegar" with the above listed recipe. Presumably this is to mix-down the dressing.
