The Best Warm Potato Salad

Seriously, this really is The Best Warm Potato Salad!

There are a number of things that come together to set this WARM POTATO SALAD apart from all the others. Sure it’s about our appreciation for the ever-popular spud, but something truly magical happens when we toss them in a warm dressing of shallot, mustard, vinegar, lemon and sour cream.

Here’s the lowdown on how to prepare it perfectly.

Ingredients for The Beast Warm Potato Salad

Baby reds are the only way to go. They’re loaded with potassium and vitamin C, and we love the way they hold their shape when boiled. Handpick potatoes of the same size when you purchase, to ensure they’ll cook evenly.

More mildly flavoured than other members of the onion family, I’m finding more and more uses for shallots these days. This recipe calls for French shallots (if you can find them) – an elongated and slightly more grey variety. They caramelize nicely in this application.

All of the veggies chopped and ready to be tossed.

It’s like the best of both mustard worlds blended into one; the robust flavour of Dijon partnered with the whole grain pop of Pommery. This might end up being my new favourite ingredient.

The addition of sour cream is what makes the dressing so amazing. Let’s not tell people that I’ve been working on this recipe for months (read: years) and the addition of this creamy finish happened, shall we say, by accident?

The radishes, too, were an addition that occurred solely because I had them on hand, and now I’d never make the recipe without them. You’ll understand why when you try it.

Yes, you can prepare a ho-hum salad using mayonnaise and eggs. Of course you can stir up an oil and vinegar version that will suffice. But hopefully, you’re now inspired to try your hand at this recipe sure to get your guests begging for more.

This salad recipe like so many others is the perfect side dish to our many main course options. Other salads we know you’ll love include our AVOCADO, CUCUMBER FETA, this COTTAGE SALAD and our super simple, super tasty GRATED CARROT SALAD. Enjoy them all along with our best wishes for, bon appétit!

WARM POTATO SALAD just became a thing!
