Creamy Potato Salad

Creamy Potato Salad 5Spring is in the air here in Ohio, yay! Spring makes me think of picnics, and picnics make me think of potato salad. I usually make my first batch of the season for Easter dinner. We have a buffet style dinner with ham, deviled eggs and of course, potato salad. This recipe is a combination of my mom’s and my mother-in-law’s recipes. Adding sour cream makes it extra creamy. I hope you enjoy the salad as much as we do.

You’ll need:
6 medium Potatoes cut into bite size pieces
6 hard boiled eggs chopped
1 cup chopped pickles (I love refrigerated Claussens pickles)
6 green onions chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste

Place the potatoes into a large pot and fill with water until completely covered by 1/2 inch of water. Bring the pot to a boil and cook the potatoes until fork tender, do not overcook. Drain and let cool.
Hard boil the 6 eggs. Cool. Chop the eggs into bite size pieces.

    Oh yes, we’re rolling into potato salad season for sure. I can’t wait to make a batch of this.

  9. Michele says:

    I’m not a big fan of potato salad mainly because I don’t like mayonnaise. This recipe sounds like I might like it-sour cream I do like. Winder what it would taste like with 2 cups of sour cream and no mayo?

    1. Jennifer says:

      I think it would be okay. I’m curious to see what it would taste like also. I have a daughter who doesn’t like mayo either, so I’ll think we will try this recipe both ways. Tomorrow is July 4th, so it’s a perfect day to try it! I’ll make a much smaller batch of the all sour cream that way it won’t be too much wasted if it doesn’t work out lol
