German Potato Salad You’ll love this delicious and hearty salad - it’s easy and very good, especially when you make it the day before.

___1 cup chopped onion
___2 cups chopped celery

No matter what foods you serve, you might just want to use a Food Warmer/Cooler or two. You can use ice to keep cold foods cold, or hot water and sterno fuel to keep hot foods hot. Read all about how they work and where to get them. (They are really inexpensive, and you can get disposable ones too, usually locally.)

Turkey needs to be fully cooked to 165°f - use your Chef’s Thermometer to pierce below the surface and read the internal temperature. Using a thermometer is the only way to know if the turkey is properly cooked. You don’t someone eating uncooked turkey and getting sick at your party. Not good.

The important thing is not to let the turkey stay out of the refrigerator for very long - if you’re not working with it, or part of it, put it back in the fridge - then take it out as you need it.

When cooked, cut or tear the turkey into small pieces for your salad. Then refrigerate that meat until you’re ready to mix it with the other ingredients.

Chop up the veggies and add them to the mayonnaise and spices. Mix together well and allow to refrigerate overnight if possible. Be sure to cover it well with film pushed right down onto the surface of the mayo.

The day of the party, remove the mayonnaise mix and the turkey from fridge, then combine together. Plate it up into your serving dish and refrigerate until just before guests arrive. Then serve on ice during the party.

Garnish with lemon and serve.
