June Meyer's Authentic Hungarian
Sour Cream Potato Salad

(Tejfeles krumplisalata)

In summer we usually made and ate cold Sour Cream Potato Salad. In winter we made and ate Hot Bacon Potato Salad. This is a traditional Hungarian summer Potato Salad, made with sour cream instead of mayonnaise. It seems my teen aged life was spent in peeling potatoes either cooked or raw. We made tons of Potato Salad. It was inexpensive, it kept well, and everyone liked it. It also went well with everything from plain cooked hot dogs, to home baked hams.

Regards, June Meyer.

Wash potatoes and cook in boiling water until tender. Do not over cook or salad will get mushy.
Drain potatoes, cool and peel.
Slice into small pieces and place in mixing bowl with minced onion, sliced celery, chopped eggs, and diced pimento.
Into bowl with these ingredients place the sour cream, vinegar, sugar and salt.
Mix all with two large spoons, or as grandma did with your hands.
Taste, if more salt is needed, add and add a few dashes of pepper.
Let the Potato Salad rest in the refrigerator for a few hours to blend flavors.
Put into a serving dish.
Sprinkle a little Paprika on top and sprinkle some chopped flat parsley on for beauty.
Serve cold.
