Grandma's Famous Potato Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by karen2

My grandmother's famous P.S. The trick is to use more sour cream than mayo--gives a super creamy texture, not like supermarket deli potato salad. I add extra parsley and a splash of lemon juice, and I leave out the pimentos. Great to bring to BBQs.

This is a great recipe, very creamy. I had rave reviews when I first served it. The only things I have changed which have definitely improved the taste is I use honey dijon mustard, Italian parsley & add hard boiled eggs to mine.
