Homemade Potato Salad
8 bacon slices, sautéed and chopped
2 cups fresh or frozen peas, cooked
6 scallions, thinly sliced
1 cup good-quality mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
Freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (or more to taste)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Boil or steam the potatoes until tender. While they are still warm, quarter or halve them, depending on size, and put in a large bowl. Stir in the bacon, peas, and scallions.
To make the dressing:
Put all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss the potato mixture in the dressing and check the seasoning again if necessary. Transfer to a large serving platter.
