It’s the south , it’s hot, lets eat shrimp and drink beer. Just this past weekend we went to a shrimp boil and I was asked to bring potato salad. Usually my go to tater salad is this tex mex wonder land of bacon, black beans, cilantro and spicy mayo – lots of mayo. As delightful as it sounds, and believe me it is awesome, the mayo isn’t very hot day friendly so I set out to find something more suitable.
In one of her first cookbooks Ina Garten penned a recipe for her French Potato Salad. With a vinegar and oil dressing it’s intended to be served warm or at room temperature, making it perfect for a warm summer cookout. The hint if white wine infused into the potatoes makes it a tad sophisticated feeling, and the generous amount of fresh herbs says it’s all about summer. Cheers to my new favorite summer side.
