Waldorf Salad- With Potatoes?

This recipe is one of those with what I call the ingredient that does not belong. Betty Crocker was trying too hard when they came up with this recipe. Potatoes in a Waldorf Salad sounds truly repulsive to me.

 1 package Betty Crocker julienne potatoes

1 to 2 medium apples, diced

1 cup cut-up dates

1 cup broken walnuts

1 medium stalk celery, sliced

1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing

1/2 teaspoon curry powder

Lettuce cups, if desired

Prepare potatoes as directed on package for Stove Top Method except- omit margarine.  Pour into large bowl, cover and refrigerate until chilled.

Stir apples, dates, walnuts and celery into potatoes. Mix mayonnaise and curry powder, toss with potatoe mixture. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Serve in lettuce cups. 6 servings.
