potato saladPotato salad is definitely a summer dish in most people’s minds, but that doesn’t mean it has to be served chilled.  Years ago, I discovered that, whatever kind of dressing you use on your potatoes, the flavor comes through much better if you add it to them while they’re still warm and then serve the salad right away. Today’s potato salad recipe calls for a mayonnaise-based dressing with plenty of seasoning, including warm beef broth.  It’s from the Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast in Lititz, Pennsylvania, a peaceful retreat with a European feel. Try this dish some summer evening and rediscover potato salad.

  4. 1 bunch parsley, minced
  5. Chives, finely chopped

  7. 1 cup beef stock or bullion, warm
  8. 2 tablespoons vinegar
  9. 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  10. 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  11. 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  12. 1 teaspoon aromat (seasoned yellow salt)
  13. 1/2 teaspoon Maggi
  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water, cool somewhat.

  3. Toss with the dressing. Add extra bullion to taste or as needed for moisture.
