Inspired from a old french recipe, it’s a flavorful, fast potato salad, where the touch of white wine brings freshness to the taste, great with grilled chicken, beef steaks, even a cold roast beef or sausages.
A delizia for a special day!!!

Ingredients: yield 6-8 servings

  • 3 pounds small red or white potatoes

  • 2 – 3 tablespoons of white fresh wine like a Pinot or Chardonnay Macon Viillage
  • 1/2 cup chopped chives
  • 2 /3 of a cup or 1 cup chopped scallions
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper

How you make it:

  • Place the potatoes and 1 tablespoons of salt in a large pot of cold water. Bring the water to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 15- 20 minutes, until the potatoes are done at your taste when pierced with a knife. Drain in a colander, then place the colander back over the pot and cover with a lid/kitchen towel. to let them steam.
  • While the potatoes are steaming covered, mix together in a bowl, mayonnaise, cream, chopped scallions, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Reserve.
