Best Potato Salad. Ever.

Randomly I had a craving for potato salad. It was sunny, we were having salmon for dinner, and potato salad popped in my head. I found this recipe on Smitten Kitchen and it was awesome. Seriously. I’m making it again next week and definitely will plan for more leftovers…. with a few poached eggs and bacon, mmm taaaaasty! oh- and this took about 2 minutes!
Horseradish Potato Salad
3 pounds small (2-inch) potatoes, your choice of variety (I found a rainbow-colored pack, and couldn’t resist, clearly)
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
1 cup sour cream (or 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup yogurt)
2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Boil the potatoes until fork tender, cool them to room temperature and quarter them. In a large bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and fold over the potatoes. Adjust seasoning to taste — you might add another tablespoon of vinegar if you feel it needs more ‘zing’ — and prepare to wow the Eastern Europeans in your life!
* so i think the horseradish is key… i found fresh horseradish and grated it in, i used a lot and it was awesome! i also added some broccolini that i blanched, which was great. next time i think i might try asparagus! enjoy 😉
