I have a serious weakness for any food that ends in the word salad (ham salad, tuna salad, pasta salad), so when I came across this slightly crispy potato salad on Flickr I was all over it! The secret are whole potatoes sliced into thick slabs and then seared slightly to give them a little crunch.
Here's what Flickr member Jamieanne had to say:
Not your average potato salad! Boiled potatoes are cut in half, then fried, cut side down in a frying pan. The potatoes are then tossed with a dressing made from olive oil, finely chopped kalamata olives, garlic, and parsley, then watercress is stirred though. Best enjoyed warm, but tastes great cold too!
It looks like a great way to make something substantial and unique for your next picnic, all without the need for mayo or refrigeration!
