This week is a very special week for Cook with Us as the CwU community is donating the prizes for CwU #32 to @adollaraday, a wonderful charitable giving project run by @pennsif. The week's theme is Pot Luck Dinner to Benefit @adollaraday Charity, ending on 26 November 2018 at 12:00 UTC. Your donations, however, are welcome even after the deadline, so please feel free to check out the @adollaraday page and send your support.

The Cook with Us team - @chefsteve, @pandamama and yours truly, @offoodandart - is sincerely grateful for your support for @adollaraday and also for the wonderful food the CwU community is contributing to the potluck!

My Potluck Contribution: Potato Salad

I decided to make a very simple potato salad that should go well with @chefsteve's perfectly done turkey. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out here. WARNING: viewing the post can result in hunger.

I started off with 2 pounds of yukon gold potatoes and 2 eggs. I threw in some parsley and carrot greens as well as there's so much of them waiting to be plucked in the garden.

I decided later on to add another egg (just because ...) and steamed the potatoes and eggs together.

Before serving, I sprinkled chopped carrot greens and parsley.

The salad is very simple. To add some crunch and fun, I cooked panko breadcrumbs in butter, added a bit of sea salt then sprinkled a generous amount on the salad.

I'm so excited about the delicious food everyone's contributing to the potluck. Can we eat now ... please?

Potato Salad

This is best made a day before to allow the flavors to meld.


  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 eggs, hard-boiled, diced
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon mustard
  • carrot greens and parsley, finely chopped (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Steam or boil the potatoes until just tender. Let cool.

Melt butter in a pan. Add the panko breadcrumbs and cook until golden brown. Set aside to cool.

Set aside half of the chopped greens.

Make the dressing by combining the mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard and 1/2 of the chopped greens in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Combine dressing with the potatoes and eggs. Let sit in the fridge overnight.

Before serving, sprinkle with the remaining chopped greens. Top with the toasted panko breadcrumbs.

Bon Appétit!


My favorite part of this salad is the buttery and crunchy panko topping! What a great idea. I also like the addition of sour cream and carrot greens. I agree this salad will go great with my roasted turkey and all the other dishes offered from the community!

I thought that was bacon at first glance 😅

It does look like it a first glance, huh! I actually considered putting chopped bacon 😋 but decided against it in the end as there's a lot of other offerings at the potluck.

Yes, we have a grand delicious feast!

Oh my - I just love potato salad - this is a must for our Christmas lunch. I've never steamed eggs like this - how long do the eggs stay in the steamer ? You learn something every day

For hard-boiled, I'd say around 12 minutes but it'll also depend on the size of the eggs. Hope you get to make it for your Christmas lunch.

Definitely want to give this a go

and who doesn't like potato salad ? But yours looks super special

Thank you =D!

I like to eat potatoes so much! It’s my favorite vegetable, and this salad looks so appetizing, yummy 😋!

I love potatoes so much as well! Maybe a bit too much. LOL!

Everyone always dig into the potato salad first at any potluck dinner, love the added crunch, a nice change @offoodandart!

Thanks so much @lizelle! And thanks for your delicious contribution to the potluck! Fun!

A pot luck isn't complete without a potato salad! Well, I'm happy any meal that includes potatoes. 😋🥔

I'm going to borrow your idea for cooking panko in butter and using it as a's brilliant. I like the addition of sour cream which adds some tang to your potato salad. This is the most sophisticated potato salad I have ever seen.

Panko breadcrumbs! I would've never thought of it! Definitely trying that out next time we make potato salad. The wife and I was supposed to submit an entry for CwU a while back using her account but she forgot to make a post about it, so we're saving that for when a similar theme comes around again.

I hope your trip is going well, tita!
