Polish Potato and Veggie Salad (Salatka Ziemniaczano-Jarzynowa)

“In Poland almost every household has their own recipe for salatka. This is my family's version (with the 'lower fat' tweaks by me.) This is a great make-ahead dish, as it tastes best the day after it's made, when all the flavors 'marry'. I hope you enjoy it. Smacznego!”

Directions

  1. Dice the potatoes, carrots, eggs, apple and pickles; mix gently in a large bowl.
  2. Add the green peas to the bowl.
  3. Add nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. In a smaller bowl combine mayonnaise, sour cream and mustard. Add to vegetables.
  5. Mix all together thoroughly but gently (so it doesn't turn to mush). Adjust seasoning to taste. Garnish with chopped green onion.
  6. Note: Sometimes, if the taste is a little too bland (depending how sweet or sour the apple is), you could add a teaspoon of lemon juice to the salad.
