Potato Salad

Don’t limit potato salad to just picnics and potlucks. This could also work as a side dish at your next dinner party. Using crème fraîche instead of mayonnaise gives it a lighter, tangier flavor. It goes well with fish, chicken and other dinner entrées.

Makes 4 servings

11⁄2 pounds small red, purple, white or yellow potatoes, scrubbed but left whole
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1–2 carrots, thinly sliced
1–2 radishes, thinly sliced
2–3 green onions, thinly sliced
A handful of Italian parsley, chervil, dill or any combination
of those, chopped
6–71⁄2 ounces crème fraîche or sour cream
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Bring the potatoes to boil in a large pot of water, then simmer for approximately 20 minutes or until tender. You can easily tell when they are tender by poking them with the tip of a sharp knife. Drain and let cool. Cut in half or quarters, depending on how big your potatoes are. You really want them to be manageable bite-size pieces.
