They say you don’t make friends with salad. But this fancy potato salad with all the trimmings is the exception to the rule! It’s my take on a French-style potato salad, dressed with a light, herby vinaigrette, instead of mayo. In this version, I’ve also added crunchy homemade croutons and store-bought ocean trout. So good!
Any number of variations would work here. If you don’t eat fish, boiled eggs would be a good protein substitute. We also can’t help but think a scattering of crispy bacon bits would be a tasty addition if trout isn’t your thing.
The success of this salad is all about the potatoes. Powdery, fluffy potatoes just won’t cut it for this recipe, you really need a creamy variety. Go kipfler, or go home.
