I found this recipe to be too tart. And it doesn't have a pleasant aroma because of the scallions and vinegar.(I used all fresh ingredients - it is the combination) There are aspects to this flavor profile that are nice, but this recipe calls for some adjustment. I will make it again, but with adjustments.
Perhaps I was really wanting a traditional potato salad when I opted to make this, but I wasn't thrilled. I used all sour cream and added in finely diced zucchini in addition to the scallion and parsley. Anyway, I'm slowly making my way through it (made a half recipe since I'm the only potato eater in the house). It is a definite change of pace and nice enough. Next time I'll probe my own cravings a bit better before I commit! LOL
I made it with creme fraiche once and once with sour cream and coudln't tell the difference so I wouldn't both with fraiche but the cornichons are essential and make this salad special.
Nice change of pace from the usual mayonnaise based potato salad. The cornichons add a bit of zing and the sugar provides a little mellowness.
Made this for a BBQ at a friends place and now they all want the recipe!!! yum and so easy...covered it with clingwrap not foil.
I made this the other day. Upon leaving it in the fridge, covered with foil, overnight, I found that where the pieces of pickle touched the foil, there were holes eaten all the way THROUGH the foil!!! Seriously it dissolved the foil. What gives?
