  • 3 lb Red Potatoes
  • 1 ¼ cup Mayo
  • ½ cup Sour Cream
  • 2 tbsp White Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • ½ Red Onion (chopped)
  • cup Green Onion (chopped)
  • ½ cup Celery (~1 stalk, cut stalk into three vertical strips prior to chopping)
  • Salt
  • Ground Pepper


  • Chop potatoes into bite-sized ½" cubes and place in a pot of salted boiling water.
  • Boil until tender and easily pierced with a fork, approximately 10 minutes.
  • While potatoes are boiling chop all remaining vegetables and combine in a large bowl with remaining ingredients.
  • Remove potatoes when done boiling, let cool slightly and combine them with mixture.
  • Enjoy right away, but the flavors are best when set in the fridge overnight.


Don't mash the potatoes or the salad won't be creamy. The mashed potatoes will soak up the sauce.
