I love potato salad and I think it is perfect for just about any occasion in the summer time. I used inspiration from Ina Garten to amp up my flavors a bit. The durkee’s sauce is hard to find here in the foothills of North Carolina. It is really a combination of mustard and mayo so you could substitute a small amount of brown mustard if you can’t find the durkee’s.
Not So Boring Potato Salad
4 russet baking potatoes
1/3 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
2 tablespoons of mustard
2 tablespoons of durkee’s sauce
1/2 cup of chopped purple onion
1/2 cup of chopped sweet colored peppers
1 medium size jar of chopped pimento drained
2 tablespoons of sweet pickle chips
2 tablespoons of celery seeds
2 tablespoons of taragon
I to 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of black pepper
I baked the unpeeled potatoes in the oven at 400 degrees until done. I let them cool and then I peeled them and cut them into small cubes. I put them in a large mixing bowl and added the other ingredients. If the potato salad does not seem creamy enough, you can add more mayonnaise or sour cream.
I hope you are having a great July 4th weekend and thanks for stopping by.
