CREAMY POTATO SALAD

CREAMY POTATO SALAD
Creamy Potato Salad

Cooked baby potatoes are tossed in a decadent and creamy dressing made up of sour cream, cider vinegar, honey, mustard, seasonings and finished with a flourish of cilantro. Perfect on a hot day, as a side dish, or even as a meal by itself!

I saw the recipe for this potato salad last week in a recipe book by Vikas Khanna (Indian celebrity chef) and I couldn’t wait for another second to make it. I bought the ingredients and made a BIG bowl of the salad, enough to feed a crowd (and that’s exactly how it went down). It was everything I had imagined a good potato salad to be – delicious, creamy, and satisfying. Totally worth the wait!
