I’m certain I was Irish in a previous life. And if I do finally manage to take that trip out to the east coast, when I set foot on PEI, there’s an excellent chance I won’t come home.
Advantage: potato. My most favourite starch.
This time of year, new potatoes abound at farmers’ markets. I can’t seem to get enough of the delicate papery skins and sweet tender flesh. While I love eating them simply steamed with butter, s&p, I also find these are the very best potato salad potatoes.
Not your gloppy square plastic container potato salad though. I like to taste genuine potato flavour in my potato salads. Go figure.
These two recipes are light and summery, and most importantly – potato-y.
I’ve made this first recipe about a dozen times – always a potluck hit.
This one is a little more work, but the summer flavour of smokey BBQ goodness with a ton of fresh herbs is irresistible
Potato, potahto. Let’s call the whole thing off. Except don’t do that, because you should seriously make these. 😉
