How to Make Awesome Potato Salad Recipe Tutorial! The dressing is extra delicious because it's made with a combo of mayonnaise, sour cream, and olive oil, instead of just mayonnaise (which I think is a little one-note). I'm using red potatoes for this potato salad. Let's get cooking!


Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
White wine vinegar 1 Tablespoon
Dijon mustard 1 Tablespoon
Mayonnaise 2 Tablespoon
Sour cream 2 Tablespoon
Salt 1/4 Teaspoon
Pepper 1/8 Teaspoon
Finely chopped celery 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (((1 rib)))
Sliced scallions 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (((2 scallions)))
To cook potatoes
Red potato 2 1/2 Ounce , sliced or chunked (((2
Salt 1 Tablespoon (((Boiled in salt water)))



For Dressing:

1. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, mustard, mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Whisk well.

2. Add chopped celery and scallions. Mix well and set the bowl aside.

For Cooking Potatoes:

3. In a large pot of cold water, place the potato pieces; add salt, making sure that the water is enough to cover the potatoes, plus an inch. Bring the pot to a boil over high heat, and cook the potatoes until fork tender.

4. Once the potatoes are fork tender, drain them in a colander, then dump the potatoes straight into the dressing and toss well.



5. Serve the potato salad warm, or chill for several hours and serve.
