This potato salad may be simple, but it has plenty of flavor, with sour cream, mayonnaise, and chunks of cucumber, celery, egg, and firm fingerling potatoes. 

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds fingerling potatoes, scrubbed and cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 4 large hard-cooked eggs, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, most seeds removed, coarsely chopped (I remove the large seeds, but don't bother with small ones towards the ends of the cuke)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 to 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

How to Make It

  1. Put potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or just until potato chunks are fork tender. Drain and let cool.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cooled potatoes, chopped eggs, onion, celery, cucumber, and sour cream.
  3. Add about 3/4 cup mayonnaise and salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Stir gently to blend ingredients. Add more mayonnaise, if desired.
