Potato Mayonnaise Salad

This is the potato salad that I made for Walk & Roll, before I went on this diet. I had leftovers, and ate them on a green salad & that was actually good. You've figured out that that's my green salad formula, right? A little salad on a big green salad? Steven who I used to work with at the salon, and probably the most deeply funny person I know, posts Facebook quizzes with deadly accuracy & took the WHICH DINOSAUR/WEAPON COMBO WOULD YOU RIDE INTO BATTLE!!!!!! quiz and his result was Riding a Dinosaur, holding a Smaller Dinosaur. That's how I do salads, but the potato salad on the green salad was just because I had leftover potato salad.

2 lbs red or yukon gold potatoes
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
4 hard boiled eggs, diced
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3 Tbsp cider vinegar

Boil the potatoes until you can stick them with a fork. Drain and peel when still warm, and dice them up. Whisk together lemon juice, oil, and salt & toss potatoes until coated. Add celery and eggs. Whisk together mayonnaise and vinegar & gently mix into the salad.
