  • 3 lbs red potatoes gold potatoes work well also. And, if you can find the teeny colorful potatoes that I used for today's photos, they add an extra "red, white and blue" and some extra antioxidants also!
  • 3/4 cup of chopped green onions green and white parts both
  • 3 stalks celery diced fine
  • 7 pieces crispy bacon crumbled
  • 1.5 t sea salt or to taste
  • 1/2 t black pepper or to taste
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 T dijon mustard


  • For best results, boil potatoes the day before and refrigerate overnight (I do not peel my potatoes; do what you like best)
  • Cut potatoes, once cool, into bite size chunks
  • Cook bacon to crispy
  • Combine green onions, celery, bacon to potatoes
  • Mix mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, salt & pepper in a separate bowl
  • Combine potato mixture and the mayonnaise mixture together.
  • Refrigerate for an hour. Decide if more salt and pepper are needed.
