Yukon Gold Potato Salad W/ Crispy Prosciutto & Truffle Oil

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sandi From CA

I hadn't thought of cooking potatoes in chicken broth before, but when I tried cooking rice that way, I was blown away! Here's a mayo-free potato salad that will "picnic" well. (Didn't know picnic was a verb, didja?)

Really good potato salad. I skipped the butter and oven crisped the prosciutto as in Recipe #319957. I also tripled the lemon (it was still quite subtle). These are all great flavors separately and together, but I do think the truffle oil shines more on the bites without the prosciutto, since it can overwhelm its delicateness.
