Creamy Potato Salad

This recipe is taken from the from the all-new ultimate Southern Living Cookbook

4 pounds small red potatoes (No need to peel)
1 ½ c light mayonnaise (I used Best Foods Olive Oil mayo, 2 c)
1 ½ c light sour cream (I actually used less sour cream, 1 cup instead of 1 ½ c)
1 ½ t prepared horseradish (I used a little less than that, 1 ¼ t)
1 t salt
½ t celery seeds
1 c chopped fresh parsley (I used about half that much, ½ c)
1 bunch green onions, finely chopped

Cook potatoes in boiling water (I steamed them) to cover in a Dutch oven 30 minutes. Drain and cool. Thinly slice potatoes (I cut ½ to ¾ inch chunks).

Stir together mayonnaise and next 5 ingredients. Gently stir into potatoes

Cover and chill. Top with green onions. (I actually stirred the onions into the dressing and sprinkled some more parsley on top.)

From Mel's Kitchen Cafe  

1/2 loaf French Bread, or about that much of any bread
2 Tbs olive oil (a little more)
1 tsp kosher salt (a little more)
pepper to shake all over

Cut the bread into 1/2-3/4" cubes.  Place on cookie sheet.
Drizzle olive oil all over and toss well using your hands.
Sprinkle the tsp or so of salt all over.  Shake pepper on.  Toss well again.
Bake at 425 for about 8-10 min. until bread is golden brown and toasted.
