How Much Potato Salad do I Need for 100 People?

The precise amount of potato salad needed for 100 people is ‘a lot.’ Seriously, for a spudtastic estimate, try this formula. Assume that each person will scoop between 1/2 and 1 cup onto their plate. Multiply these quantities by 100 and the answer sprouts forth – between 50 and 100 cups. If you settle into the middle of those figures, then ultimately, you’ll need about 75 cups of potato salad to feed 100 people.
