Summer Time Potato Salad Recipe

The Sun is heating up and it looks as though unlike in 2010, this summer could be a nice one.  That means that once again it’s time to fire up the grill, mix a beverage and entertain.
I hoped to give all my patrons a nice fresh recipe to accompany the main dish and crafted a classic potato salad with an option for a hint of bacon.
While it’s not extremely complex the flavor is a classic and if you follow the few tips that i included, I’m sure that you are going to have a great side to accompany your favorite protein when it comes off the grill.

Jeff’s Potato Salad

2 Pounds Red Bliss Potatoes, peeled, and quartered with skin on 2 Shallots Minced 2 Celery Ribs Diced
1/2 Cup Mayonnaise 3 Tablespoons of Cornichons or Dill Pickles 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard 2 Tablespoons White Wine Vinegar
3 Tablespoons of Chopped Fresh Dill Salt and Pepper to Taste Optional: 4 Ounces of Cooked Chopped Bacon Put potatoes in 6 quarts of salted water (or stock) and bring to boil. Cook until a toothpick can slide through the potato easily but isn’t mushy about 12 minutes. Drain and let cool. Whisk together all remaining ingredients.
Gently toss with potatoes and chill.

    This recipe also uses some special ingredients ponzu sauce and smoked olive oil. These ingredients give a lightly smoky flavor to this salad.
