TYLER’S POTATO SALAD ULTIMATE

pertoire. I’ll be ready once the weather breaks.

Tyler Florence’s Ultimate Potato Salad

– serves 8 as a side –

Adapted from Tyler’s Ultimate

Ingredients
2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
2 large eggs
1/2 bunch sliced scallions, white and green parts
2 tablespoons drained capers
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup finely chopped dill pickles with 1/4 cup juice, about 2 pickles
1/2 small red onion, minced
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling

Procedure
1. Fill a pot with cold water, a generous amount of salt, the unpeeled potatoes and the eggs. Bring to a simmer and cook the eggs for 12 minutes, then remove and continue cooking the potatoes until a paring knife pierces them easily to the center.

2. Reserve some capers and scallion greens for garnish. Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, capers, onion, pickle, pickle juice, scallions, parsley, and lemon juice in a serving bowl. Stir well to combine. Season with salt and pepper, but remember the capers and pickle juice are already salty.

3. Peel the egg and grate it into the mixture. One the potatoes have cooled enough to handle, peel them with a paring knife and break up by hand into the bowl, stirring occasionally. Once all the potatoes are added, toss to combine with the dressing, scatter reserved capers and parsley, and drizzle with a little olive oil.

Yes, I’ve done the pickle juice thing too. It works great. It’s kind of like that secret ingredient that people ask you about.

I’m not sure this is the “ultimate” though. I’d probably use more eggs, add corn, and probably some kind of ham.

The photo makes this recipe look unappetizing. Too much mayo. Makes it look fattening. I hate capers.

I have to agree with wunami as regards more eggs. Definitely add several more. Also paris22 makes a good point with the poor photo qualilty.

I have to say I was very skeptical. I am very picky about my potato salad but I had to make it once I bought the cookbook and all I can say is he wasn’t kidding. It is the best I have ever made. You should make it just once exactly as the recipe states and then see what you think. I am not a fan of capers but they just kind of disappear into the salad and leave the flavor and I usually would add more eggs but this just doesn’t need it.
