Our potato salad is an amalgamation of warm potato salad made with oil and lemon juice and cold potato salad made with mayonnaise.
Cooked new potatoes and blanched green (and yellow) beans are tossed in olive oil, lemon juice, mustard and garlic. It smells wonderful and every time I make potato salad, I swear that I will remember to make hot potato salad for dinner another night. This mixture is refrigerated til well cooled.
Once the warm potato salad is cooled completely, the rest of the ingredients are added and gently tossed. Then back in the fridge again to meld and get really cold for a picnic or dinner on a hot summer evening. Here is the potato salad served with chicken stuffed with goat cheese.
