I made the most kickass potato salad last night. Fortunately for me, none of the kids like it, so it's mine, all mine! They can have PB&J or tuna for lunch and I will eat a pint of potato salad.
I'm not regressing to my old job here, so you're on your own for quantities. Make it look right and don't forget to taste it! A lot! Add more of whatever until you've got a flavor you like.
Hmm, I think it's easiest to write this recipe in the style of Joy:
Bleu-Green Potato Salad
Boil in heavily salted water until tender when pierced with a fork:
whole, skin-on waxy potatoes such as Red Bliss or Yukon Gold, not russets
Meanwhile, combine in a large bowl:
radishes, sliced or diced small
a shitload of fresh dill, chopped
finely chopped celery, if you're into it
lots of crumbled blue cheese
bacon bits, if you so desire
When the potatoes are done, drain and then cool them with cold water. Cut them into small-ish cubes and add to the bowl. Add:
sour cream to coat everything well
kosher salt and lots of black pepper
Mix together, taste, and adjust seasoning. Add more dill, salt, and pepper if you like. If the flavor is just a little flat, splash in some
or other acid to your taste. Enjoy at room temperature or chilled. Duh, refrigerate leftovers.
