Spring Vegetable Potato Salad



Ingredients:
2 lb Yukon gold potatoes, peeled, cubed and cooked
4 radishes, cubed
1 carrot, cubed
1 stalk celery, cubed
1/4 red onion, chopped

for the dressing:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons mustard
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dried chervil
1 teaspoon freeze dried chives
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon horseradish
1/4 teaspoon white pepper

Directions:
In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour over the vegetables, carefully stir to combine. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.


My thoughts:
This potato salad makes the most of what spring has to offer; new fresh radishes, carrots and celery and tiny potatoes. I hate making side dishes so this potato salad is perfect for me, it packs in a huge amount of vegetables with minimal effort. Not to mention that the dressing is quite zippy thanks to the horseradish and mustard making it no ordinary potato salad. A potato salad for potato salad haters. Terribly tasty, incredibly easy.

  2. Freeze-dried chives? So interesting, I havn't ever heard of these. Would it make quite a difference if you used fresh chives in this dish?

  3. This looks reeally good! I love potato salad but usually find them too creamy and heavy. This one sounds right up my alley - and I'm definitely making it first chance I get!

  5. Christina- Freeze dried chives can be used interchangeably with fresh. Chives are so perishable, I find it handy to keep some freeze dried on hand for dishes like this when I just need a small amount.
