SOUPS FAVORITE COUSIN
For reasons unbeknownst to me, I made potato salad for the first time in my life in December of 2020. Since then I have made that same potato salad approximately 47 times. I like having it around the house but it’s also perfect for parties and I always leave with an empty bowl at the end. It’s beloved by all, except for one guy who I’m convinced is lying to me. I want to bring this recipe to the public, since we are in the height of picnic salad season and it’s kind of silly to take soup to a potluck.
I’ve been testing a new soup recipe for the last few weeks after being inspired during a recent lunch. I love this soup and I’m excited about it, but the recipe just isn’t ready yet. To have standards and stick to them is hard. Especially for a person like me whose personal food standard on a scale of cheese whiz to caviar is Taco Bell. Please enjoy this incredible potato salad for years to come and continue to wait patiently for a new perfected soup recipe.
SOUP DOOD POTATO SALAD
5 lbs. potatoes – yukon gold, red skin, or a mix of both
2 shallots, diced
5 – 7 scallions, white and green parts separated
2 bushels of dill, chopped and separated
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
¼ cup distilled white vinegar
¼ cup dry white wine or white wine vinegar
¾ full fat Greek yogurt
2 – 3 dill pickles, diced
5 – 7 pepperoncini, diced (optional)
Fresh cracked pepper
Boil potatoes in heavily salted water until they are tender and a fork easily passes through. Meanwhile in a large mixing bowl combine the shallots, bulbs of the scallions, half the dill, mustard, and vinegars. Pour the cooked potatoes over the alliums and stir to coat the potatoes in the mixture. Cover the bowl with a lid or plastic wrap and let it sit for 10 – 20 minutes. Uncover and add yogurt, mayo, pickles and pepperoncini, as well as the scallions greens and more chopped dill. Stir to combine. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm or cold.
A word about my dog
I recently found out that my dog, John, needs to have an expensive surgery to repair his torn ACL. I have started a GoFundMe campaign in the hopes of bringing me closer to funding John’s surgery which will take place in the beginning of September.
