“Texans love a good barbeque, and potato salad is the perfect accompaniment for any cookout. Tillamook Natural Sour Cream gives this recipe a balanced richness, along with the bright flavors of fresh dill and red onion. Your friends and family will keep coming back for more!” - Cara Ferguson of Culinary Cara
Boil chopped potatoes in water over high heat for 15-20 minutes, or until fork pierces into potatoes with little resistance. Drain potatoes and allow to cool completely. While your potatoes cook, assemble the creamy dressing. Combine remaining ingredients (except for the bacon) in a sealable container, and set aside in the fridge until potatoes have cooled. Gently fold dressing, crumbled bacon, and potatoes together just before serving. Add a bit of freshly chopped dill for garnish, if you’d like.
Tips for stress-free home entertaining:
When I entertain, I follow one motto: “Keep it fresh and simple.” No need for the Thanksgiving-style spread, just make a few snacking options with a few fresh ingredients. This way, your guests will be able to converse and enjoy each other’s company!
Kitchen advice for other moms and dads:
Parents are always very busy, so it’s important to keep things fresh and simple. Choose a recipe that can be made in advance, and something with around a handful of ingredients. When entertaining guests at home, serve just a few great dishes instead of assembling an entire buffet. Your wallet and your hectic schedule will thank you for it.
