Best Potato Salad Dressing
- Mayonnaise and sour cream. Because This is a creamy potato salad, I use both mayonnaise and sour cream, the combination of both is incredibly delicious. Sour cream is like a star in this recipe; it makes the mayonnaise much lighter and tastier; I don’t recommend removing or replacing it.
- Onion and garlic. Both onion and garlic give a wonderful flavour and crunchiness to this recipe.
- Olive oil. I use it in this recipe for extra delicious flavour (i use extra virgin olive oil).

How To Cook The Potatoes For The Potato Salad?
You can cook the potatoes as a whole without chopping or removing the peel or after you peel and chop them(which I prefer). I found cooking the potatoes as a whole is a bit messy and hard so I prefer to peel, chop then cook it.
How Do I Know If My Potatoes Are Cooked?
Potatoes will be cooked when you manage to push a fork easily into the centre of a potato chunk.
- Adding salt in the water while cooking the potatoes gives it an excellent taste and don’t worry about making it too salty, it lightly seasons the potatoes.
- You can eat this salad hot or cold (as you prefer).
