Potato Salad (serves about 3)

Potato Salad
I have eaten many potato salads (some tasty and some not so good) but somehow I have never attempted to make any. I decided to make a salad with ingredients that I like and most importantly already have in my kitchen, to eat with my beer-battered fried cod. This is a rough estimate of the ingredients I used. This recipe is not overly sweet, sour or salty. Feel free to adjust the ingredients and add or omit what you want in your own salad. My husband likes this salad with lots of eggs and he thinks it is tasty.

Potato Salad (serves about 3)


2 Idaho potatoes, boiled, peeled, diced into bite size
3 hard-boiled eggs, peeled, roughly chopped
About 1/3 cup chopped red onion
About 1/3 cup chopped "Bread & Butter" pickles
About 1/2 cup light sour cream
About 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
About 1 Tbsp mustard
A little squeeze of lemon juice
A little chopped fresh herbs (such as parsley, chives, tarragon, dill or any mild herbs)
A few pinches of salt


Mix all ingredients until well blended. May adjust the ingredients and season with salt according to your taste.

*The "Bread & Butter" are sweeter pickles and the jar I used labeled "no salt".
*I used Hellmann's real mayonnaise and Gulden's spicy brown mustard.
