Suzie’s Layered Potato Salad

Suzie’s Layered Potato Salad

Posted on

 *By Suzie “Saucy Mama” Barhyte- Original Recipe!*

The whole family gathered at Black Butte Ranch in Central Oregon for Easter. Chris and Irene have a house there and it has become our Easter place. This year everyone is brought snow clothes because who knows what the weather would bring, and if it was not snowing at the ranch we knew we could always head up to Mount Bachelor for a day of playing in the snow. Well, tradition has it that Jan and I sit in the lodge by the fire and watch everyone else playing in the snow.

I made a layered potato salad to take with me because it tastes great, looks pretty and travels well. I stopped by the deli and get good quality meats, breads and cheeses and we were all set for the chaos when everyone started arriving. Truth be known, I love all the noise that occurs when the cousins first get together and the adults are all talking at once.

We are certainly not a quiet family.

Happy Spring, Everyone!

Suzie’s Layered Potato Salad


5 lbs small red potatoes ( pick out potatoes all close to the same size so that they cook evenly)
2 cups sour cream
2 cups mayonnaise
2 heaping tablespoons Saucy Mama Creamy Horseradish or WVM Creamy Horseradish or Haus Barhyte Creamy Horseradish 
2 teaspoon whole celery seed
1 teaspoon salt
2 med. Red onions (minced)
2 bunches of parsley (minced)


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place the red potatoes in the rapidly boiling water. Boil for about 20 minutes until a fork easily pierces a potato. Allow to cool until the potatoes are room temperature. Slice into 1/6 to ¼ inch slices. Mix sour cream, mayonnaise, horseradish, celery seed, and salt. Place a layer of sour cream mixture in bottom of bowl. Top with layer of potato slices, then sprinkle with a layer each of onions and parsley. Then start with a layer of potatoes, layer of sour cream mixture, then onions and parsley. Repeat until ingredients are used ending with onions and parsley.

This makes a large salad that easily serves 12 to 15 people. It can be halved. This is a very pretty salad when layered in a clear glass bowl with fairly straight sides.
