How to Make Potato Salad: Cold Potato Salad with Pickled Beans, Smoked Salmon and Dill Dressing


This is one of my no recipes posts. I'm just going to share the ingredients that make this Cold Potato Salad with Pickled Beans, Smoked Salmon and Dill Dressing and let you decide how much of each ingredient to put into your own bowl. I have faith you can do it ;)

This salad was inspired by two media dinners I attended. At the first one, at Jackson 20, I received pickled beans as a going away gift. Brilliant. At the second one, Tel'Veh, I tried a dish of cold mashed potatoes with seared tuna and green beans. That's how this dish came about. Of course I used smoked salmon instead of seared tuna and pickled beans instead of regular ones, but you get the idea.


Cold Potato Salad with Pickled Beans, Smoked Salmon and Dill Dressing

Ingredients

small potatoes, cooked until tender in salted water, cooled and halved

pickled beans, cut into 1 1/2" segments

shallot, thinly sliced

smoked salmon, chopped into bite-size pieces

fresh dill, chopped

sour cream

lemon juice

salt & pepper

Directions

1. Combine the first five ingredients in a bowl.

2. In a separate bowl thin out your sour cream with a bit of lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. This will be your dressing.

3. Add the dressing to the salad and combine.


If you don't like sour cream {how could you not!?}, skip the dressing and add some olive oil and lemon juice instead.


But you know that I love all the white condiments ;)

Who doesn't love sour cream?! The touch of dill sounds delicious. Any substitutes for pickled beans? (You're so lucky to have a stash!)

You could use pickles or capers!
