I wish that I could meet you in person, chat about books across our easy chairs, and serve you a plate of the potato salad I just made.
If you are used to American potato salad, made with bacon and a jar of mayonnaise, you would not believe how good this recipe is. Deceptively simple, it contains these ingredients:
- Yukon gold potatoes (or small red skinned potatoes)
- green onions
- vinegar and oil
- salt and pepper
You wash and boil the potatoes until they are only slightly soft. Peel them when they’re cool. Layer them thinly sliced with the onions, oil and vinegar. salt and pepper. You chill the bowl when it’s all prepared; when you serve it, and eat it, you know that summer has finally arrived.
It’s the taste of my youth, and as my mother says, “How lovely it is to eat your memories.”
