Creamy Potato Salad

Well it’s 4th of July week and that means lots of barbecues, cookouts, parties, events, and summertime food!  The fact that the 4th is on Thursday this week kind of stinks unless you are one of those lucky folks who gets/takes Friday off (which I’m sad to say isn’t me). So this week I’ll be bringing you some great July 4th-friendly recipes, like this Creamy Potato Salad to get you in the mood for our delicious day off in celebration of our country’s independence.

Fingerling potatoes are boiled until nice and tender along with one egg which becomes perfectly hard-boiled.  A creamy mixture of sour cream (I used Greek yogurt instead), yellow mustard and light mayonaisse gives this salad a light consistency.  Fresh celery and red onion add bits of crunch and flavor to this salad which makes a great complement to your holiday burgers or dogs. If you’re looking for a simple, basic yet lighter potato salad without all the calories, give this a try. It’s even better the next day.


The ingredients:


Place a saucepan filled two-thirds with water over high heat; add egg, and cover. Cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Add potatoes to pan; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high; cook 5 minutes or until tender. Drain.


Combine remaining ingredients in a medium bowl; add potatoes.



Peel and coarsely chop egg; add to potatoes.
