Potato Salad

Post by gatorman » Mon Sep 03, 2012 6:04 pm

This is an economical dish to make, and very tasty. I think Hemingway would have liked it, he wrote about potato salad a couple of times.

About 2.5 lbs small red potatos
1 cup diced celery
6 scallions sliced thin (white and some green)
1/4 red onion finely diced
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbs white wine vinegar
2 tbs diced parsley
1 tbs dill seed
1 tbs oregano
1 tsp rosemary
1 tbs salt
1 tbs pepper
1/2 cup evoo
Put the potatos in a large pot of cold water and bring to a boil. Boil for 15-20 minutes. You want them cooked but not mushy. Drain, rinse in cold water and set aside to cool. After they are cooled cut into quarters, leaving the skin on. Add the scallions , celery and red onion. In a small bowl whisk the lemon juice, vinegar and spices together, slowly whisk in the olive oil. Pour dressing over other ingredients and combine them together. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. Adjust seasoning before serving. Makes ~ 8-10 servings.

A baked potato and a stick of butter is even more economical.

It interesting that threads get locked up if they go off course slightly but ones that start out that way stay around. I guess they die on their own.

If you are creating your own recipes put them up on allrecipes.com. That and Alton Brown are my go to "recipe books".

There is a longstanding assumption that vodka is made from potatoes, and historically that was true. Majority of Vodka's made from wheat. So, Vodka plus potato Boglehead way to me. :sharebeer

Nope, but feel free to adjust the seasoning to your individual taste.

Most vodkas are distilled from grain. Luksusowa is a fine choice for the potato variety.

agree, potato salads are most unhealthiest things human can eat. I would call this salad "heart attack salad".

But he left out the mayonnaise! The best potato salads start with soaking the hot potatoes in the salad dressing (aka EVOO with vinegar and spices) and finish with adding the mayonnaise after it is cooled off. That's a heart attack salad.

What you buy in a store tends to have a double dose of mayonnaise, so even if they leave out the EVVO, it still qualifies as a HAS.

this condition maybe not however the second condition that it is probably present in addition to the previous diagnosed condition and it is the underlying condition that is believed to cause the first condition.

The purpose of baking a potato (over all other cooking methods) is to remove moisture leaving dry flaky potato flesh. Russett potatos respond to this method better than all others.

They should be cooked whole in an oven at 450F for an hour. Or nuked for 10 min followed by 30min in a 450f oven to drive out the moisture.

Typos, typos. What are you going to do? :(

I was trying to make the point (and failed) that it is EVOO, not evoo, as your link confirms. But let's talk pronunciation. Does anyone say "evu" as in a bad pronunciation of the beginning of evolution? Long e or short? Isn't long e British?

Thank you, Gatorman, for your wonderful recipe! I had planned to make it last night. In fact I had even boiled the red potatoes with a great sense of excitement and anticipation. Because I have a big Boglehead day ahead of me, driving around town to banks that will let me change the terms of my CDs only if I appear in person with three forms of I.D., and I wanted to have something ready in the frig for supper because I'm sure I will wilt before then. But then I kept thinking of how my husband will only eat potato salad if it has big globs of mayonnaise, and I chickened out. Reluctantly I made the potatoes into curry instead. But I still plan to make it because it sounds wonderful. Thank you for posting this! :D

Because I have a big Boglehead day ahead of me, driving around town to banks that will let me change the terms of my CDs only if I appear in person with three forms of I.D., and I wanted to have something ready in the frig for supper because I'm sure I will wilt before then. But then I kept thinking of how my husband will only eat potato salad if it has big globs of mayonnaise, and I chickened out. Reluctantly I made the potatoes into curry instead. But I still plan to make it because it sounds wonderful. Thank you for posting this! :D


Ya' know, if he won't eat it, that means there's lots more for you. Just sayin' . . .


Exactly! That's why I didn't make it. Late-night munchies and big bowl of home-made potato salad on hand, a rather dangerous combination. :wink:
