I have made my potato salad like this for years. It is very flavorable. To help cut down on the calories, use fat-free mayonnaise and sour cream. You won't taste the difference with the vegetables and spices added.

A classic! Creamy and delicious indeed. The sour cream helps lessen the heaviness of the mayonnaise while keeping the salad moist. I used light sour cream. A crowd-pleaser for sure. Thanx!

I made this for a family get together and it was a hit!! I substituted the Mayo with Miracle Whip and I couldn't get enough compliments on it. Now I am the one who has to bring it to every function. :o)
