Favorite Potato Salad

It has been awhile since I posted a new recipe.  This recipe for potato salad isn't new but an all time favorite.  I've been making it for years and I'm surprised I've never posted it.  Today we are having a cookout and this potato salad is always requested.  It's a basic recipe and turns out perfect every time.



Ingredients:

2 eggs
2 lbs. new red potatoes, cut into bite size pieces (about 7 cups when cut up)
1/3 cup celery, diced
1/3 cup onion, diced
1/2 cup mayonnaise (I only use Real Hellmann's Mayo)
1/4 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper



  • 1.  Place cut potatoes in a large saucepan; add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain well.  
  • 2.  Meanwhile, place egg in small saucepan; cover with cold water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer about 15 minutes. Immediately drain; run cold water over egg to stop cooking. Peel egg; chop.
  • 3. Place cooked potatoes, chopped eggs, celery and onion in large bowl. 
  • 4.  In small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, salt and pepper; blend well. Add dressing to potato mixture; mix gently to coat. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hours or until serving time.
