Potato Salad

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.
