Red Potato Salad with Roasted Garlic

I've heard tell of those who find the football game secondary to the tailgate party. I'm one of those people. Don't get me wrong; I love a good football game, but the fun had with others on a crisp fall day sharing our favorite hearty fall foods just can't be beat.

Hands-On Time: 25 minutes
Ready In: 3 to 4 hours, including cooling time
Yield: 12 servings


    5 lbs red potatoes, boiled until done and cut into chunks**
    4 stalks celery diced medium
    1 cup mayonnaise
    1 cup sour cream*
    4-5 cloves roasted garlic**
    1 Tablespoon sugar
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 Tablespoon grainy mustard


  1. Put the roasted garlic into a medium bowl and mash well with the sugar and salt.
  2. Add remaining ingredients until well combined.
  3. Toss potatoes with dressing and refrigerate for several hours until flavors develop.

*Ingredient Tips
Fat free on the mayo and sour cream is totally allowed!

**Recipe Note
To boil 5 lbs. of red potatoes: Cover the unpeeled potatoes with water in a kettle, bring to a boil, then reduce to a low boil until fork-tender -- about 20 minutes. Drain and let cool before dicing.

For the roasted garlic, wrap one head of garlic in tin foil and toss in a 400 degree F oven for about 30-45 minutes or until the garlic softens -- easy as that!
