Tossing potatoes with a little good vinegar while they are still warm infuses them with flavor. Capers, gherkins and a touch of anchovy give this old-fashioned salad a piquant finish, while red bell pepper and celery give it an appealing crunch. Source: EatingWell Magazine, Summer 2004

Ingredients

Directions

  • Hard-cook eggs (see Tip). Peel eggs and chop coarsely.

    Advertisement
  • Meanwhile, place potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with lightly salted water and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, until just tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain; let cool for about 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, oil, anchovy paste and pepper in a small bowl until smooth.

  • Cut potatoes into cubes and place in a large bowl. Add vinegar and salt; toss gently to coat. Add bell pepper, onion, celery, parsley, gherkins, capers, chives, chopped eggs and the mayonnaise mixture; toss to coat well. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: The salad will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Tip: To Make Hard-Cooked Eggs: Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Pour off hot water and run cold water over the eggs until completely cooled. To peel, crack the shell, then roll egg between your palms to loosen shell. Peel, starting at the large end. Rinse under cold water or dip in water to remove bits of shell.

Was nice and tangy you'd never notice any anchovy flavor- no fishiness. However the lack of Dijon mustard was a little vexing. I tried it as it is first but couldn't resist adding Dijon -and a little more vinegar a dash of lemon juice. It's just me liking my salad on sour side. Had it in a flatbread wrap with salad greens and a few strips of BBQ chicken for a fulfilling meal. Read More

I made this twice and it keeps getting asked to be made again. My wife and kids can't get enough. I double the amount of potatoes and veggies but keep the mayonnaise the same as 1 recipe and double the yogurt for the dressing. I find for 1 recipe the amount of dressing it makes is more than enough and I don't use half of it anyway. Read More

Will make again; some changes. Didn't have yogurt used fat free sour cream. I love the high ratio of raw vegetables to potato; love celery used more. Next time will try the yogurt (hooray protein) and 2x the eggs as another cook suggested and more capers. Read More

Sounds like a delicious salad but I don't reccomend that anyone cool the cooked eggs by running them under cold water until they are cool. A great waste of water in these:"dry" times. Read More

I MADE THIS SALAD FOR LAST SUNDAY'S SUPPER IT IS FANTASTIC!! MY HUSBAND SAID IT'S THE BEST POTATO SALAD I HAVE EVER MADE AND IT BEATS THE STORE BOUGHT SALADS. THE ONLY TWEAK I DID WAS I USED 4 EGGS INSTEAD OF 2. I THOUGHT IT BALANCED IT OUT BETTER IN THE SALAD SO THAT IT WASN'T OVERWHELMED BY THE OTHER INGREDIENTS. I WOULD SERVE THIS SALAD ANYWHERE AND ANYTIME IT IS AWESOME!!! 07/20/2010 SHARON Read More
