    FrVanilla's Note:

    This is a recipe by Julia Child. I'm always asked to bring this potato salad to all summer get togethers. One friend says that she can't eat any other potato salad, because she just keeps thinking about mine. I use 3/4 mayo and 1/4 sour cream.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel the potatoes and slice each one lengthwise in half, or in quarters if very large; then cut crosswise into half-round or quarter-round slices, about 1/2 inch thick.
    2. 2
      Put the slices in a saucepan with water just to cover and 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt per quart of water. Heat to a simmer, and cook the potatoes for 5 to 6 minutes, or until just cooked through. It is essential that they be just cooked through. Bite into a slice or two to be very sure. Immediately remove from the heat and drain the potatoes into a colander, but save a cup of the cooking liquid for dressing the potatoes. Transfer bowl. Stir the cider vinegar with 1/3 cup of the potato water or chicken stock and drizzle this over the potato pieces, turning them gently to distribute it evenly. Let sit 10 minutes to absorb the liquid.
    3. 3
      Add the prepared onion, celery, bacon, pickle, hard-boiled eggs, and chives, and season carefully, to taste. Top with 2/3 cup of mayonnaise (or a mix of mayonnaise and a bit of sour cream) and, with a large rubber spatula, gently fold everything together until well blended. Taste the salad and add more salt, pepper, or mayonnaise as needed.
    4. 4
      Cover the salad and set aside in the refrigerator for at least an hour or so before serving. If it is refrigerated longer, let it come back to room temperature before serving. Taste and adjust the seasoning again.

      I really liked this recipe. The relish added a touch of sweetness which I thought was very nice. This is the first time I've ever used the 'potato water' method, and found it interesting. I really loved the firmer potato chunks as opposed to the 'well cooked' that I usually do. I'll remember that trick no matter which recipe I'm using. Thanks FrVanilla for a lovely addition to my salad collection. I'll certainly be making this more often. Made for the May Herb/Spice of the Month.
