ingredients

directions

  • Scrub the potatoes and place them, whole, in a saucepan with water to cover by 1/2 inch. Bring the water to a boil, reduce the heat, and cook the potatoes gently until they are just tender and can be pierced with a sharp knife. Drain immediately and let cool slightly. If desired, scrape the skin from the cooked potatoes as soon as they can be handled. For a decorative look with fingerlings, scrape off only a band of skin, about 1/2 inch thick, all around the long sides of the potato.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a small saute pan. When hot, add the scallions and the onion, toss to coat well, and cook for about a minute over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, toss to mix, and cook for just a few moments, then remove the pan from the heat.
  • Slice the potatoes while still warm, cutting them crosswise into 1/2 inch sections. Put the pieces in a large mixing bowl, pour the wine and 3 or 4 tablespoons olive oil over them, and toss gently to distribute. Add the warm vegetables from the pan, mustard, chives, chopped herbs, salt and pepper and gently fold all together, mixing well but not crushing the potatoes. Taste the salad and add more seasonings as you like.
  • Serve the potatoes warm (no colder than room temperature). Arrange the large radicchio leaves, if you have them in a close circle on the serving platter, with their curved insides up, to form a rough bowl. Spoon the potato salad inside the leaves, sprinkle with chopped egg around the edges, and parsley over the top.

    This was a nice change of pace from mayonnaise-based potato salad. I especially enjoyed the flavor of the onions after cooking them (okay, I admit it, I cooked them more like 3 minutes), they were so sweet.

    This was really good, as most of his recipes are. The flavors are well-balanced and the salad was just perfect with grilled chicken. This is the second time in a week that I've made this. DH loved it and wanted it again. It's a nice change from the regular mayo-based potato salads.
