Potato Salad with Sour Cream and Scallions

While the rest of the meal is on the grill, toss together this cool steakhouse salad.

  • prep: 10 mins
    total time: 1 hour 30 mins
  • servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 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)

Directions

  1. Step 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. Step 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. Step 3

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

    I have made this and it is wonderful. You just have to make pototoe salad in the summer it is an all year round salad and why not during the holidays and dress it up a little with scallions and red pepper on the top for garnish. Sounds Yummy to me.

    This recipe is super-simple, super-inexpensive and a crowd favorite. I now have had two different guests at two different barbecues corner me in the kitchen and tell me how they don't like potato salad but they love this recipe!

    Note: Works well with red potatoes too.
