2 lbs. white new potatoes, cut into 3/4 in chunks
salt and ground pepper
3/4 C reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 C light mayonnaise
1/2 C thinly sliced scallions, plus more for garnish
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

In a large pot, cover potatoes with salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Simmer until potatoes are tender when pierced with a sharp knife, 12-15 min. Drain well. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together sour cream and mayonnaise; add warm potatoes, and gently fold to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Cover; refrigerate at least one hour and up to one day. To serve, season salad again with salt and pepper, if needed. Fold in scallions. Garnish with bacon and more scallions, if desired.

Stacey brought this to our going-away party in San Jose - yum!

Have dressing ready to go when potatoes are finished cooking.
