Sorry, but I found this to be extremely bland as written. I had to add alot of spices, onions and extra chives to get any flavor out of it.
Made the first batch as written (plus a little salt) and really liked it. Made the second batch using half sour cream/half ranch dressing, and loved it. This is just my kind of potato salad - quick, easy, and best of all, tasty (I'm not a fan of those 'everything but the kitchen sink' potato salad recipes). Thanks!
This recipe is almost identical to the potato salad recipe my mom made when I was a young girl. I use russet potatoes instead of red potatoes and lots of chopped onions. I have never added the chives but I think they would be a yummy addition! The key to this potato salad is to make it the day before and let the flavors blend overnight in the fridge. Everytime we have a picnic/potluck and I bring this everyone wants the recipe and it gets gobbled up FAST!!! The onions and letting is sit overnight are key to bringing out the flavors of this creamy potato salad.
I have just made this and it is really lovely. Enjoy !
