Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo yummy!! I made this w/out bacon or peas because i did not have any and it was still so fresh and flavorful! My husband said it was the best he has ever had! I would agree! I love you Julia! lol
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.
I love this potato salad! It's fresh and different than the same old potato salad i'm used to. i will definately be making this again.
Right after making this I tasted the salad and thought perhaps I had found a Julia Child recipe that wasn't superb. I should not have doubted! After putting the salad in the refrigerator for an hour, it tasted wonderful. I guessed on the amount of potatoes so may not have had the right amount to absorb all the vinegar and potato water so I did drain the potatoes before adding the remaining ingredients. I still am not convinced that relish belongs in a potato salad (personal quirk), so I would omit that next time. I used a mixture of light sour cream, mayo and light mayo, because I love mayonnaise and potato salad too much--at almost 600 calories a serving I did want to lighten things up.
This is the best potato salad I have ever made and the only one I will make from now on.Easy to make, I used real bacon crumbles that I keep on hand and the chives. Served it for Mother's Day lunch with MIL, everyone raved. Thanks for sharing.
