About the Recipe
This 4th of July we all might be spending in much smaller groups than usually. But that is why it is even more important to have great food.
Independence Day in Polish Style! Being from two different cultures is amazing, especially when it comes celebrating federal holidays and important days in either of those cultures. 4th of July is a very special day for all Americans, and I have to say that celebrating that important day always gives me a lot of pleasure.
5 potatoes (medium, unpeeled, boiled)
1/2 red onion
5 medium polish pickles (cucumbers in brine)
salt & pepper
1 tbsp of mayonnaise
1/2 tbsp Greek yogurt (I use whole milk yogurt)
1 tsp of spicy mustard (I use Polish styled)
1 tbsp of sparkling water
salt & pepper
Potato salad is great for potluck and it is amazing left for few hours in the fridge. So you can prepared it head of time.
Wash well, and boiled unpeeled potatoes. They should be soft but they can not be over cooked. Depending on their size it should take from 20-30 min.
While their are cooking. Whisk together mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard, sparkling water, pepper and salt. Set aside in the fridge.
Finely chopped red onion, Polish pickles, dill, parsley, chives, scallions, 1/2 chili.
Boiled potatoes drain and set a side in a cold place, for them to completely cool down. Chopped them with the peel on to one inch pieces.
In a big mixing bowl put all the ingredients together, and add the sauce. Add salt and pepper and gently mix everything together.
Put in in the fridge for couple hours before serving. Serve it cold.
The potatoes HAVE TO BE completely cold, if they will be warm you will end up with mush potatoes instead of the potato salad.
Remember to serve it cold! It tastes so much better.
