Fingerling Potato Salad Recipe Recipe

Fingerling Potato Salad Recipe

11.05.10 by Jackie

Fingerling potato salad is a very easy one-course lunch meal I throw together when I’m in a hurry. To make the dish, fingerling potatoes are steamed until softened. These would be great on their own, but to make it a complete meal I added crunchy Romaine lettuce, sliced celery and Persian cucumbers.

The vegetable salad is then mixed in a yogurt vinaigrette dressing, which remains very healthy without sacrificing flavor. I also added a few slices of smoked salmon on the side. The dish is light, but it still keeps me energized until dinner time. I could eat this salad every day.

Sauteed Parsley Potatoes (Poelee Pommes de Terre) Recipe

In French, poêlée de pommes de terre aux fines herbes translates to "sautéed parslied potatoes". They are a cross between pommes rissolées, pommes parisiennes and Lyonnaise Potatoes. The potatoes are sliced, pan-fried then diced and sautéed in parsley oil.  The dish is complete in no time.

My favorite way to serve these kinds of potatoes is with a steak salad. I grill a tri tip sirloin steak, slice it thin and mix it with red oak leaves and a simple lemon and olive oil vinaigrette. This is probably one of my favorite meals of all times!

Roasted Creamer Potatoes Recipe

Roasted Creamer Potatoes

Creamer potatoes are potatoes that are harvested while they're still young. I recently bought these apricot-sized potatoes at the farmers' market. They were so cute, I couldn't resist!

I roasted them whole with skins on and rubbed them in butter flavored with oregano flowers from our garden. The potatoes have a crisp-skin on the outside, while the inside is tender and moist. If you can't find creamer potatoes, you can use Yukons that have been cut into quarters, but it's not the same as having each bite wrapped in crispy potato skin. Mmmmmm.

Gourmet Red Potato Salad Recipe

This potato salad recipe is unique in that it contains no eggs. My husband Lulu doesn't like mayonnaise and one of his sisters is allergic to eggs, so I made an eggfree salad dressing using chipotle peppers, lime, cream cheese, sour cream, roasted Roma tomatoes, roasted red bell peppers, red wine vinegar and pickled garlic. I used wax potatoes from our garden which add color to the salad. To the potatoes, I added red radishes, celery, sun-dried tomatoes, red kidney beans, pine nuts and a myriad of herbs. It’s perfect for a summer picnic!
