My 'signature' potato salad. We have this atleast once a week over the summer with simple, grilled suppers.

Evelyn.. fantastic! So easy, I chopped up all the ingredients while I cooked the potatoes. The sour cream added so much, as did the paprika. I added all of the onion at the early stage (oop) but it was fabulous. I agree on the servings if you are serving with another salad, but as a stand alone side it served 6 adults and one child with quite a lot of leftovers.
