This is such a quick throw-together. Makes a great simple dish or as a side with roasted chicken. BTW, when using as a side I often add some minced fresh dill.

  1. Cook potatoes in large enough pot to cover potatoes with water. Add the garlic and salt to pot.
  2. Cook until potatoes are done yet remains firm.
  3. Drain and return to pot (off the heat) to dry.

I did this with baby new potatoes and it was pretty good actually. I liked the combination of all the flavors together. I didn't use as much sour cream as the recipe called for. It seemed like it would be too much and overwhelm the potatoes
