Everyone in my family loves this potato salad. We mix it up occasionally by adding in crumbled bacon or some garlic, or chopped ham, but usually it's served as the recipe calls for.

  • Combine potatoes, pickles, and chopped onions in a large bowl.

  • Mix mayonnaise, sour cream, and pickle juice together in a small mixing bowl. Pour over potatoes. Gently toss until potatoes are coated with dressing. Add chopped eggs; gently mix. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight for best flavor.

Cook's Note:

If, after refrigerating overnight, the potato salad seems dry, mix in a bit more mayonnaise.

Best if left overnight to soak in all of the creamy goodness. You may find it to be too sloppy if you serve it same day. Read More

It seems to me there has to be a typo in this recipe in either the sour cream amount or the mayo. I halved the recipe thereby requiring 1/4c sour cream and 3/4c Mayo - a total of 1 c. is a lot for 2 potatoes - the result was more like potato soup. I had to drain/scrape off as much as I could to make this palatable. It also benefits from a pinch of sugar a pinch of salt and a good shake of pepper. Overall I will likely stick with my old recipe but it was nice to try something new. Read More
