I am always looking for new sides to have with dinner, especially BBQ. Potato Salad is just one of those easy sides to throw together and have on hand. It is a real crowd pleaser. There are many variations on Potato Salad and you can always add and remove different ingredients to adapt it to your personal taste. This is how I make mine.

IMG_20151010_083837First I start with the potatoes. I used russet potatoes but really any potato would work. I peeled the potatoes and chopped them to bite size pieces. I then place them in a pot of water and add salt. Bring the potatoes up to a boil and boil until fork tender.

IMG_20151010_084149While the potatoes are cooking, I take this time to hard boil the eggs. I used 5 eggs because I have 2 smaller eggs in the pot. I love our farm fresh eggs! After the eggs have boiled in salt water, I drain the hot water off, put ice cold water in the pot with the eggs and crack the eggs open to cool them.

IMG_20151010_091126I know mix together about 1 cup of mayo, 1/2 cup of sour cream, 1/4 cup of sweet relish, 1 Tablespoon white vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of paprika, 1/2 cup of chopped onion, and about 3 tablespoons of dried lovage leaves. (if you don’t have any lovage you can use about 1/4 cup of chopped celery) Mix all those ingredients together and then add the potatoes.
