This potato salad recipe has become my ultimate favorite potato salad. My sister-in-law, Leta, saw a recipe similar to this one prepared on a cooking channel. She made it for a family gathering out of her head and I have further adapted it for our tastes. My recipe leans more toward a baked potato theme. Hope you enjoy it!
Sour Cream Potato Salad
Unpeeled or peeled red potatoes, cut in bite size pieces and boiled, about 8 - 9 medium potatoes
6 slices of bacon, diced, and fried crisp
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh dill or dill weed, to taste
1 Tablespoon apple cider or white vinegar
3/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3-4 green onions
Cook the potatoes and fry the bacon crisp. Combine dill or dill weed, vinegar, sour cream and mayonnaise until smooth and creamy. Add dressing and 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to cooled potatoes. Slice green onions and their stems. Sprinkle extra 1/2 cup on cheddar cheese on top of potato mixture, then sprinkle green onion and crisp bacon pieces.
I am not a huge raw onion fan. I love the taste that an onion leaves behind, but just don't like the bite. Leaving the onions on top of the salad allows the onion lovers to get as much as onion as they want and allows folks like me to dig deeper to leave the onions behind.
Hope you enjoy the salad. It is delicious!
