This is something I just threw together one day for a pot luck at work. It's a delicious, creamy potato salad bursting with flavor. The ingredient measures may be altered to taste, and to create the desired consistency.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 2 pounds new red potatoes
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 pound thick cut bacon
- 1/2 cup sliced black olives, drained
- 1/2 cup diced green onions, divided
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup sour cream
- salt and pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Boil potatoes until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool and dice.
Place eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and dice.
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and crumble.
In a large bowl, mix together the potatoes, eggs, bacon, olives, 1/4 cup green onions, mayonnaise, sour cream, salt and pepper. Increase quantities of mayonnaise and sour cream as necessary to create desired consistency. Garnish with remaining green onions.
