Nugget Potato Salad With Horseradish


I’m posting a potato salad recipe using delicious nugget potatoes that are in season now. These are B.C. nugget potatoes – small, dimpled potatoes with natural sweetness, and full of flavor. Tossed together with a mixture of fresh celery, onion, chives, sour cream, and horseradish, this simple potato salad was just delicious! If BC nugget potatoes are not available at your grocers, you can also substitute them with any small variety of yellow waxy potatoes.



Nugget Potato Salad With Horseradish

Ingredients


2 to 2 1/2 lbs B.C Nugget Potatoes, or any small variety potato, washed
1 small Red Onion, chopped
3 ribs Celery, chopped
3 Tbsp chopped fresh Chives
6 Tbsp Sour Cream
1 Lemon, juiced
4 - 5 Tbsp Prepared Horseradish
2 Tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt to taste
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Method

Boil the potatoes with 1/2 tsp of salt until just tender. Drain and cut the potatoes into quarters or halved if smaller.

To prepare the dressing, combine red onion, celery, chives, sour cream, lemon juice, and horseradish and mix well. Add olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Combine the potatoes with the dressing and mix thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 to 2 hours before serving.

  2. mmmm Horseradish. Who'd have thunk something so simple could sound so delish?? Adding this to my list of things to try out on my weekly Sunday cookathon! My guy is going to go wild for this when I sneak it into one of his lunches.

  3. I love horseradish in potato salad! I'm not a celery person but the red onions and chives sound delicious! My mom used to add chunks of apple in her potato salad too and the sweet crunch is perfect.

  5. I absolutely *adore* your blog! I made this potato salad last night and it was out of this world. I served it with some grilled sausage and it was the perfect meal.

    Also, it made a TON of salad--next time I will probably cut the recipe in half. :)
