As I already announced – we’re planning to move. The present state of preparation involves a lot of discussing, clearing up, clearing out … So we are busy. Busy often means that cooking & baking get a raw deal.
Some days ago I realized that it was about lunch time w/o having prepared anything … What about sandwiches? However, when peering into my fridge some leftover cooked potatoes caught my eye.
So I thought: what about a quick leftover potato salad?
No sooner said than done.
I had about 400 g of potatoes, maybe almost 500 g. Somewhat too much for 2 people, I thought, but actually you’ll never have too much potato salad in your fridge – especially of the home-made style. Be sure it’ll vanish soon after the lunch or dinner you planned it for.
I needed hard-boiled eggs – so I at once cooked 2 eggs for 10 min. (I’ve almost always got a box w/ eggs in my fridge …)
In the meantime I peeled the potatoes & chopped them into small pieces. (It’s also possible to forget about peeling …)
What else did I found in my fridge resp. pantry?
I chopped a spring onion. About half of a glass of cornichons (a handful …) are cut into small pieces. Some anchovies are minced & a tablespoon capers follow into the bowl w/ the potatoes. (Yes – all these delicacies are usually in my fridge.)
All is finally mixed. Add some white balsamic vinegar for the savory edge & let it rest until the eggs are ready.
The eggs are sliced crosswise w/ an egg slicer & added to the potato mess.
The dressing is a simple approach:
- Greek yoghurt
- lemon oil
- olive oil
- sweet French mustard
- dried herbs of Provence
- salt & pepper.
Lemon oil? It’s a ready-to-buy oil based on a neutral oil w/ lots of lemon flavors.
Just mix all ingredients w/ an egg whip & add to the potato mess.
(Of course you may also rely on store-bought mayonnaise or any other ready-to-use salad cream …)
