Ach. I don't even like watery cole slaw. Invest in more slotted spoons?

My apologies. I inadvertently lied. I do use Mayo. 2-3 pounds new or red skin potatoes, 1 cup sour cream and a dollop or two of Mayo. ( S & P and some garlic powder, that's about it) It's a bonus if you add anything else to the salad. I use sweet onion and definitely green onion tops or parsley to garnish. Some snipped tarragon if you have it. And knowing me, probably celery and radish slices if there are any in the house. My notes say Ok to use greek yogurt, doesn't mean that I actually did this, maybe wishful thinking for "next time". Like wise, my notes say to add a spoon or two of horseradish. I don't really have a "real recipe", so consider this is it.

I have made this for parties, so it was made in advance and chilled. Maybe the sour cream got more solid again after it was thinned just enough for tossing. It has never gotten watery.

Pesto. In or on anything. Pasta, sliced chicken, mixed in a veggie salad instead of dressing. Slathered on baguettes slices.

Since my memory is so good making a sour cream sauce, I typed the recipe verbatim this time. The original calls for pine nuts, but walnuts are more affordable and give an equally good texture and flavor.

For me, my go to is sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion or vidallia onion, fresh parsley, fresh basil, a little honey, a little balsamic, olive oil, cracked black pepper and crumbled feta. The longer it sits, the better it gets!

When I'm "Qing or grilling", the sides go with the meal. Generally based on the style of what I'm cooking.

Your Kale salad is on the menu tonight PF, with a few substitutions. I bought the kale but I forgot everything else on the ingredient list. I only had regular lemons. I used avocado oil, dried cherries and agave. Spiced pecan and goat cheese. I've been looking for a kale salad dressing that wasn't italian-y. I think the subs will work nicely. Thank you!

Perfect! I've been using Avocado Oil since I found it, too!
