Vortex World Famous Potato Salad

Total Time
Prep 40 mins
Cook 0 mins

The name says it all, a fantastic potato salad from a top Atlanta restaurant, The Vortex Bar and Grill on Peachtree Avenue. I agree with the reviewer that the cooking time does seem like a long time however, this recipe is from the Vortex Restaurant, and this was the way it appeared in the San Antonio Express News. Therefore each chef should be aware of this and make your own adjustments.

I just made this, and I have to say WooHoo this is GOOD! Normally I only eat mustard based potato salads, but this recipe has changed that forever. I do have a few comments though: 1.) The ingredients list says red wine, and the directions say red wine vinegar. I used the vinegar. 2.) If I would have cooked the potatoes for the amount of time specified, I would have had mush. I just cooked them until they were tender when I inserted a fork. 3.) I had to leave out the celery because when I opened my produce drawer it wasn't a pretty sight. 4.) I was out of seasoning salt, but I think that would have made it too salty for me. I will be making it again with the celery!

Just to make it clear, Vortex potato salad also contains hard boiled eggs, bacon and chives

The dressing on this potato salad is just wonderful! I only made a small portion of this recipe, because I am only feeding two and this recipe makes quite a lot. I only had to cook the potatoes for about 25 minutes for them to be tender. Miss Annie always has the best recipes and this one is no exception! Thanks again, Miss Annie : )
