Potato Salad with Green Onions

Garrison Wayne


This Potato Salad is very easy. It features green onions which pair very well with potatoes. It is clean tasting, slightly tart, with a peppery finish. The combination of sour cream and mayonnaise compliment each other and lend a real creaminess to the dish. This potato salad will go well with just about any grilled meat, chicken or fish. If you are serving fish, try adding a little fresh chopped dill to the mix. This recipe proves that some things are best done simply.
