  1. 3 russet potatoes (1 1/2 pounds), peeled
  2. 3 hard-cooked eggs, coarsely chopped
  3. 1/3 cup diced (1/4-inch), red bell pepper
  4. 3/4 cup sour cream
  5. 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  6. 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  7. Coarse salt
  8. Coarsely ground black pepper
  1. Cut the potatoes into large chunks. Place them in a pot of salted water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.
  2. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them into small pieces, about 1-by-11/2-inches, and place them in a bowl. Add the eggs and the bell pepper and toss together gently with a rubber spatula.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise and relish. Toss this dressing gently with the potatoes, season generously with coarse salt and pepper and serve.
