Thanks for the video. It was great. I bet you melted. I wish I had someone to send it to. No mom since I was little and my MIL is in an assisted living facility with the beginning stages of Alzheirmer's.

Potato Salad

Red potatoes - washed, unpeeled & cubed, boiled in salted water
Celery - chopped fine
Scallions - chopped fine, green included
Fresh parsley - chopped fine
Sour cream
White vinegar (or vinegar or your choice)
Dry mustard
Salt and ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients except potatoes in a bowl to taste. Add cooked potatoes and gently stir. Chill before serving.

Variation: For added flavor boil potatoes with a stalk of celery and an onion halved (discard celery and onion after boiling).

OK - sorry for the delayed response!

For the potato salad:

Quarter or halve about a pound of red potatoes; cover with at least an inch of cold water in a big pot and boil until fork tender. Drain and set aside.

While those cook, quarter a red onion and then cut it into very thin slices; then chop about a quarter cup of scallions - white and green parts, or whichever parts you prefer.

Finely mince garlic and whisk it with about 1 T yellow mustard and 2 T champagne vinegar, then slowly whisk in about a quarter cup olive oil. Stir in salt and pepper to taste. Then combine all the ingredients and chill, or serve at room temperature - it's also good with asparagus!
