Ultimate Potato Salad

I love potato salad but after I found this recipe I haven't had one as good since. What I love about this salad is the red potatoes hold up well and it has a combination of mayo and sour cream so the dressing is lighter and still very flavorful. 

I found this recipe from Paula Deen. She call's it Lady's warm potato salad. It is supposed to be served right away. It is good that way but personally I think it taste better after it has been sitting for hours even the next day. I find the flavors meld together much better. I don't add everything she adds so If you want it just the way she does you should check out the link under her name. 


8 medium red potatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/4 cup chopped green onion tops
1 cup chopped celery
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
1 tablespoons seasoning salt
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream

In a large pot, boil the potatoes with the skins on for 10 to 15 minutes until tender. Let the potatoes cool just to the touch and cut into cubes.

In a large bowl, combine the next 5 ingredients. In a medium bowl combine last 4 ingredients. Pour over salad and combine it all gently. 

Serve at room temperature or I prefer it sit for hours even over night.

    1. I'm so glad you liked it. I think adding bacon to it is a great idea. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

  7. This potato salad was nice and creamy. I love how it has sour cream in it. It makes it taste tangy and light.
