Made exactly as directed and very much enjoyed! I don't make potato salad often, and the family likes it, so this was a welcome treat. I enjoyed it so much I wondered Why I don't make it more often! And so easy to make. I forgot the green onions, sorry about that, next time I will put them in.. I Had them, I just forgot! Thank you for this lovely recipe that I will make again! Made for Vegn swap#10

The saor cream makes for a cooler, less heavy taste than all mayo. I loved the tang from the vinegar and sugar (I used the amounts listed for those). I used light sour cream without a problem..... I just had to stir before serving each time. Very enjoyable potato salad. Thanx for posting!

I loved this version of potato salad but my DH thought it was outstanding! I've never made it using sour cream as the dressing base before, so I was pleased to find out how good it tastes. Now, I skimped on the full amount of sour cream, only to end up adding more the second time we pulled the bowl out of the fridge, so I recommend following the recipe on that count. (Spuds soaked in the moisture.) I did add 2 celery stalks and a few radishes, sliced, and half the bundle of green onions, which I mixed into the salad, although the recipe wasn't clear on whether to do so or whether to use as garnish. Thanks, Katzen, and thanks, Katzen's mom!
