Potato Salad ~ with garden fresh new potatoes, bacon and sour cream

There are hundreds of ways to make potato salad; I couldn’t even begin to guess which is my absolute favorite but this one came out quite tasty.  It would even work well warm.  Based on a loaded baked potato I took some new baby potatoes I found at the farmers market today and gently boiled them and added in all the yummy ingredients.

The only thing I lacked today was green onion so I used a  little Vidalia I had.  The green onion is a better choice I think; plus it would have added a bit of needed color with the green. Delicious either way!

Potato Salad ~ with garden fresh new potatoes, bacon and sour cream

  • about 2 – 2 1/2 pounds new potatoes
  • 3/4  cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup diced onion ~ preferably green onion
  • 5 strips cooked bacon ~ crumbled or diced
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese ~ shredded

Cut potatoes in half or quarters as needed to make them large bite size.  Cover with water and bring to boil.  Reduce heat and cook 8 – 10 minutes until tender. Drain and rinse with cool water.  Refrigerate until chilled a bit.  Add remaining ingredients and stir.  Check for seasoning and creaminess.  I ultimately added another 1/4 cup sour cream but test before adding.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
