Potato Salad with Fingerling Potatoes

Hope everyone is having a great  week. Many are on vacation right now. Not me I am doing some prep work for Easter dinner. Next I’m heading out to the garden to plant some onions and garlic. First I wanted to share a recipe with you.

This time of year I come across  fingerling potatoes in the store. They are a small finger shaped potatoes. Hence the name, and they are so cool looking. Is cool still a cool word? Hmmm… Anyway…

They have a nice creamy texture when cooked. I like using them to make potato salad. I always make potato salad on Easter. It goes well with ham. I am sharing with you my version of a family favorite. It’s so simple to make. You can make it the day before, it’s actually better when it has been refrigerated for several hours. It looks real pretty with the chopped parsley on top. :)

Potato Salad

Potato salad made with mayonaise and sour cream. Creamy texture.

Ingredients

  • 2lb potatoes
  • 4 eggs (hard cooked)
  • 1 pickle ~ large (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons pickle juice
  • 1/4 cup celery (finely chopped (optional))
  • 1/4 cup onion (finely chopped (optional))
  • 1/3 cup mayonaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • pepper
  • sea salt
  • fresh parsley ( optional)

Note

I make this salad the day before. It is good the day you make it but the next day it has marinated together and it tastes even better. It's a family favorite.

Directions

Hard boil your eggs. Set a side to cool.
Cut potatoes into bite size pieces. In a medium sauce pan add potatoes and cover with water. Bring to a boil on the stove top. Cook until soft. Drain and cool.
In a large bowl add cooled potatoes, mayonaise and sour cream. Mix.
Add mustard and mix together.
Chop the pickle and add pickle and pickle juice to potatoes. Add onion and celery.(optional) Mix.
Chop up boiled eggs into bite size pieces. Add to potatoes. Mix well. Salt and pepper to taste.
Mix well. Refrigerate over night for best taste. Garnish with chopped parsley before serving. Optional.
