Sour Cream Potato Salad

If you love potato salad, then you’ll love this Sour Cream Potato Salad!

I am a fan of potato salad. 

However I sometimes get in a potato salad rut. 

Lately I’ve been sticking to the classic recipe that I know and love.

However my eyes were recently opened to this Sour Cream Potato Salad and I am now hooked!

I find that potato salad is a bit like chicken. 

There are a variety of ways to make it and each one produces a unique flavor and often texture.

This Sour Cream Potato Salad may take a bit longer to make but it’s worth the wait. 

After cooking your potatoes, you allow the Italian dressing to really coat and absorb into the potatoes. 

Then you add in the other ingredients, giving it a delicious creamy flavor that is sure to be a hit at your next barbecue or picnic.

The great thing about potato salad is that it goes well with anything. 

It can be as a casual side dish with sandwiches or transformed into a delectable side dish with your favorite chicken or steak meal. 

This is also a great dish to use up leftover hard boiled Easter eggs if your whipping this up around Easter. 

If you are anything like me, you too look for ways to use up those Easter eggs

I generally have 4 or 5 dozen eggs that I attempt to use up.

Aside from deviled eggs, this Sour Cream Potato Salad is a delicious and crowd pleasing alternative!

We all need a few go to egg recipes and this is one of ours!  Give this Sour Cream Potato Salad a try.  I bet you’ll enjoy it as much as we do!

Just a note, as it seems that our neighbours to the south don't ever seem to put radish in there potato salad. You don't know what you are missing. No true Canadian potato salad would be without them.

The Italian salad dressing I used is Walden Farms Creamy Italian Italian dressing calorie free. I also used low fat sour cream. You can purchase the salad dressing at Walmart. It was excellent!

I love radishes. I'll have to try it. It sounds like a great addition. Added crunch and zip.
