Creamy Potato Salad

Total Time

Prep: 40 min. + chilling


12 servings

Mildly seasoned with onion and dill, Mom's delightfully different potato salad is pretty, too, with the red potatoes left unpeeled. Of course, that also means it's quicker to make that traditional potato salad! —Pat Cole Polebridge, Montana


  • 7-1/2 cups cubed red potatoes (about 2-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 hard-boiled large egg, chopped
  • 3 celery ribs, chopped
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green pepper
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • Sliced hard-boiled large egg, paprika and fresh dill sprigs, optional


  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain and cool.
  2. Transfer potatoes to a large bowl. Add the chopped egg, celery, onion and green pepper. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, pepper and dill. Pour over potato mixture; gently toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Garnish with egg, paprika and dill if desired.
