Purple Potato Salad

A few weeks ago when I was visiting Birmingham my dad and I went to Pepper Place Market and picked up some goodies for our Sunday night dinner.  One of the things we grabbed was a mixed bag of potatoes including fingerling and purple potatoes.  I found this recipe.  I edited it a little due to what was on hand.  I think this is my new go to summer potato salad.  Pretty damn good if I do say so myself.    My dad made a bad ass pork brisket in the crock pot to go with it.  Served with our Strawberry Fields Forever cocktail just to get your mind right.  I always listen to music while I cook (and for pretty much everything else I do in life) and today was Broken Bells.  I saw them at Iron City the week after and the show was beyond amazing.   What’s your go to cooking music?

Purple Potato Salad

Serves 4
baby potatoes (mix of purple and white)
1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
A generous pinch of sea salt and ground black pepper

Place the potatoes in a pot of cold water, cover, place over a high heat and bring to the boil. Simmer until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Drain the potatoes and slice in half lengthways.  For the dressing whisk together the vinegar, oil, lemon juice, garlic, mustard.  Pour the dressing over the cooked potatoes and gently toss, until everything is combined.  Make another drink and enjoy!
