how much potato salad for 50 people

Report as

A good rule of thumb when making potato salad for 50 people is to assume that each person will eat half of a potato. Using this logic, you will want to change the recipe, adding ingredients, to equal the amount needed for 25 potatoes.

There are 16 cups in a gallon. So a gallon of potatoes salad would serve 16 people at a cup each. Since not everyone will eat a full cup a gallon should serve 20 people. So 50 people you will need around 2 -2 1/2 gallons for 50 people.

You will need to prepare potato salad using 10 to 14 pounds of potato's in order to feed 50 people. This should result in 16 pounds of potato salad when prepared with additional ingredients.
