This is definitely my husband’s favorite potato salad… and I really like it because it contains way less mayo compared to most recipes!  I used light sour cream and it worked perfectly!

While this can be quickly made and served right before eating, it also tastes fantastic cold if you make it ahead of time!

  1. This looks fantastic and I have a question. The recipe states that there are 705 calories and 4 servings. Is each serving 705 calories or is this for the entire recipe? THANKS I LOVE your web site!!!

    1. Thank you Vicki!! Apologies for the confusion, the servings stated 4 however this recipe makes about 8 cups of potato salad so it should state 16 servings (1/2 cup each). I have updated the nutritional value to reflect the correct information.
