potato salad with smoked salmon

May 23, 2008

I loved this potato salad.  Usually I hate potato salad because it is a mushy mix of overcooked potatoes and mayonnaise.  The dressing coats the potatoes beautifully.  I substituted goat cheese for Jamie’s creme fraiche and added some red onion for crunch.

I was the only person who ate this in our house.  Mike will protest that he took TWO SERVINGS, but the servings were 1/8 of a potato each, so I call bullshit and say that doesn’t count.

I fear that you cannot take the English out of that boy.  Although Jamie Oliver doesn’t have that excuse, does he?  Sigh.
