  • 2 lbs yellow potatoes
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 medium sweet onion
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika for garnish


To Cook Potatoes

  • Wash peel and dice potatoes into ½ inch pieces.
    2 lbs yellow potatoes
  • Add potatoes to a large pot. Cover with cold water until there's 1 inch of water above the potatoes. Season generously with salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes, until potatoes are just fork tender.

To Boil Eggs

  • Place two eggs in a small saucepan and cover with water. Add a splash of vinegar and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, turn off the heat and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  • Prepare an ice bath - cold water and ice cubes in a small bowl - and place eggs into the ice bath. Let cool until cool enough to handle. Then peel the shell and finely dice the hardboiled eggs.
    2 large eggs

Vegetables and Dressing

  • Finely dice the celery and onion. Set aside.
    2 stalks celery, 1 medium sweet onion
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients (except paprika)
    ¾ cup sour cream, ¼ cup mayonnaise, ¼ cup apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoon sugar, 2 tablespoon sweet pickle relish, 1 teaspoon celery seed, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper


  • Drain boiled potatoes and add to the large bowl with the dressing. Add the diced celery and onion, along with the hardboiled egg. Fold with a spatula until potatoes are fully covered in the dressing and everything is well mixed. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, but up to overnight.
  • Taste potato salad, adjusting salt, pepper and vinegar if needed. Prior to serving, sprinkle smoked paprika on top.
    ½ teaspoon smoked paprika


Potato salad tastes best the next day. Make 24 hours in advance if possible and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
