Caramelized Onion And Pepper Potato Salad Recipe @pinch

This creamy potato salad is unique in so many ways. The caramelized onions and peppers add a little something different to the salad. It is great for those who like onions in a potato salad but not their crunch. Mixing mayonnaise and sour cream are slightly sweet and tangy but at the same time has a mellow flavor. There's a hint of garlic that complements the caramelized onions and peppers. This salad doesn't have a ton of ingredients. You really taste the flavor of the potatoes. A delicious side dish for any cookout. Was trying to think of how I could make potato salad without my usual ingredients and this popped in my mind. First the onions and then the rest developed as I went... it turned out really delicious!
