    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 5 lbs red potatoes, all about the same size (you can use white but reds hold together better after boiling)
    • 1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 1 cup mayonnaise
    • 1 -3 jalapeno pepper, deseeded, deribbed and finely diced
    • 4 green onions, tops too
    • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced (optional)
    • 1 cup grape tomatoes (optional)


    1. 1
      In a large pot, bring 3 quarts of water to a rolling boil.
    2. 2
      Peel or scrub the potatoes. Carefully add to the boiling water. Add the salt.
    3. 3
      Boil until soft but not too soft. We don't want them to fall apart when we mix in the dressing. 15-20 minutes should do it for small-medium sized potatoes.
    4. 4
      Drain and set aside to cool.
    5. 5
      After they have cooled, cut into small bitesized pieces, about a 1/2 dice, and place in a large bowl.
    6. 6
      In another bowl mix the sour cream, mayo, diced jalapenos, green onions and cilantro if using. (If you prefer, add the dressing ingredients to your food processor and pulse until smooth.).
    7. 7
      Pour dressing over the potatoes and gently toss to coat. (actually, I've found that after the intial toss, putting a tight fitting lid on the bowl and inverting it a couple of times mixes the salad pretty well without breaking up the potatoes.).
    8. 8
      Garnish with parsley and/or cilanto and/or grape tomatoes.
    9. 9
      Refrigerate until serving time.

      This is so AMAZING! We have given up the egg/celery/mayo versions. This is light and so yummy! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

      I wasn't crazy about this. Not a lot of flavor.

      I made half recipe, used flat leaf parsley rather than cilantro, that was my only change. I used two jalepeno peppers also deseeded. The longer it sat in the fridge the more the potatoes absorbed the dressing which gave it more flavour too. Very nice cimple recipe.
