Potato Salad Recipe from Everyday Food

This is a potato salad recipe I've been making for over 6 years and have never posted here. Even though it is tabbed in my magazine, I'm kind of getting tired of looking through the first few years of magazines to figure out which one it's in.

Potato Salad with Sour Cream and Scallions
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.
