This is a potato salad that has a mashed potato kind of texture. I was experimenting for the 4th of July and my family and friends loved it.

  • In a serving bowl, mix together the sour cream, salad dressing, shredded cheese and hard-cooked eggs. When the potatoes are cool, stir into the dressing. If you like it creamier, mix longer. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Hard-cooked eggs

Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, and peel.

i think the previous two reviewers have done this recipe an injustice. carolyn makes it pretty clear that this is not going to be your average potato salad. i was not looking for average. that is why i tried this one. i had to make some changes as to what i had in my pantry. i substituted yogurt for sour cream and mayonaise for miracle whip. since the only real difference i have ever noticed between miracle whip and mayonaise is miracle whip is sweeter i added 1 1/2 T of sugar to the sauce. that might seem like a lot but i was also trying to compensate for the tartness of the yogurt. i did not want to ad anything as strong as onions so i added 1 T freeze dried chives. the resulting salad was superb. if you are a mashed potato fan you have got to give this recipe a try. it's a winner!

Tried this recipe and it was different than what we are used to. To make this better I would add some onions and celery to make it a little better. Not sure about the Miracle Whip.. gave a different taste. I enjoy using Mayo in any potato salad recipes. We also did not add in the eggs. All in all not a bad recipe but I doubt we will be trying it again. Read More

Good start to a great potato salad bland as written. I made this as written then just started throwing things in. This needed a little more personalization to make it more potato-salad-y than just mashed potatoes with cheese and eggs. I added three very large chopped celery ribs some chopped garlic dills a bunch of chopped green onion some crumbed crisp bacon a tablespoon or so of dijon a litle Frank's Hot Sauce and some spices (onion powder garlic powder chopped chives). We don't use Miracle Whip so I just substituted Hellman's. It's always good to use less liquid (sour cream/mayonnaise) than what's called for and just add as you go. This way it's neither too wet or dry. We enjoyed it. Honestly I think we like the texture of a roughly mashed potato salad than a chunk to be honest. It just tastes better that way. Read More

My family found this to be tasty as is although we felt that it needed another egg or two and maybe some onions (green onions for a little color maybe). Read More

Looking for a potato salad that needed a photograph I came across this one. I used all the ingredients as listed with the exception that I did not peel my potatoes. We like potato salad with the skins. My family found the salad a little too plain for their taste buds. I told them to let it blend all night and try it again if it wasn t to their liking I would doctor it up. Twenty four hours later I found myself adding 3 extra eggs cup of diced onion and 2 stalks of celery. Three stars as written and 4 stars with the added ingredients. Read More
