Classic Potato Salad


Ok, another potato salad? Really? Well, yes. I usually prefer vinaigrette potato salads, but sometimes, mayo and sour cream is the way to go. It's perfect with cold cuts, or as we served it last, with bbq chicken drumsticks. You can prepare it in advance, it'll just get better if it's left overnight. Add the leeks just before serving, though.

Classic Potato Salad

200 ml sour cream
100 ml mayonnaise
2 tbsp capers
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp mustard, ideally sweet/hot
salt, pepper
1 kg potatoes
1/4 leek, finely sliced

Peel and cook the potatoes until tender. Meanwhile, whisk together the sour cream, mayo, capers, onion and mustard. Season with salt and pepper.

Dice the cooked potatoes, still warm, and stir into the sauce. Mix well. Place in a bowl, and before serving, decorate with finely sliced leek.
