Expert Tips

This salad can be made a day ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. Remove about 15 minutes before serving.

You can use one, or various different kinds of potato, according to your preference.

Directions

  • 1 To prepare the lemon dressing: Combine all the ingredients and set aside.
  • 2 To prepare the salad: Cook the potatoes in water with some salt until soft, for about 15 minutes. Be careful not overcook so the potatoes keep their shape.
  • 3 Drain, peel and combine in a container, seasoning with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the chopped egg, green onion and enough dressing for a moist salad. Cover and set aside.
  • 4 When ready to serve, peel the avocados, remove the pits and dice. Add to the potatoes and sprinkle with herbs.
  • 5 Garnish with pieces of halved, hard-boiled egg, fresh herbs and the sunflower sprouts, if desired.
  • 6 Serve, and enjoy!

To this day I fondly remember the potato salads my mother would prepare for days at the beach. She made them with white potatoes, onions, lots of parsley, well-seasoned mayonnaise, and sometimes capers, olives or pieces of hot dog. I imagine she used whatever she had on hand to whip up a different salad, which for me was always the most delicious in the world. Throughout the years I have tried so many salad recipes, adapting the ingredients depending on where I was in the world at the time and the products available and in-season. But in all actuality, potato salad is so basic it doesn’t require much garnish. All you need are some high-quality potatoes, fresh herbs, a good dressing and a magical touch of your favorite ingredients. This is a very simple recipe, which you can modify to you and your family’s taste, and it can be served as a side at any number of different occasions. Enjoy this quick and delicious recipe!
