    • Drain the cooked potatoes and let them cool to room temperature.

    2. Prepare the Dressing:

    • In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt, and black pepper. Adjust the seasoning to taste.

    3. Assemble the Salad:

    • In a large salad bowl, combine the cooled diced potatoes, thinly sliced cucumbers, finely chopped red onion, and chopped hard-boiled eggs.
    • Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients.

    4. Toss and Garnish:

    • Gently toss everything together until the salad is well coated with the dressing.
    • If desired, garnish with fresh dill or parsley.

    5. Chill and Serve:
