Potato Salad with Sour Cream and Scallions

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2005


  • 2 pounds white new potatoes, quartered and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions, plus more for garnish (optional)
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled, for garnish (optional)


  1. In a large pot, cover potatoes with salted water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer until potatoes are tender when pierced with the tip of a sharp paring knife, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain well.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together sour cream and mayonnaise; add warm potatoes, and gently fold to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.

  3. To serve, season salad again with salt and pepper, if needed; fold in scallions. Garnish with bacon and more scallions, if desired.
