Potato Salad Recipe With Sorrel and Eggs

My grandmother’s potato salad is something special. It’s got the perfect balance of tangy vinegar, a teensy bit of heat from mustard, and the perfect creaminess from just the right amount of mayo. It’s not at all sweet, except from a little sweet onion. The potatoes manage to be the perfect combination of soft and firm. The only problem? The eggs get mixed in, so you might not even know they were there. This salad has the same great flavors, but I prettied it up with a bit of sorrel and put some eggs on top so they don’t get lost.

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients
8 medium new potatoes
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon mustard
2 green onions, chopped
4 medium-boiled eggs, sliced into rounds
Salt and freshly ground pepper
4 cups roughly chopped sorrel or watercress
1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions
Place the whole potatoes in a pot of cold water and bring the water to a boil. Cook for about 8 minutes, or until you can pierce the potatoes with a fork. Drain and set them aside to cool.

Cut the cooled potatoes into quarters, and toss them in a large bowl with the vinegar, mayonnaise, mustard, green onion and 2 of the eggs. Season to taste with salt and pepper. If you have the time, cover and chill the salad overnight. The flavors will blend and improve.

Place the sorrel in a bowl and top with the potato mixture. Layer the remaining eggs on top, drizzle with the olive oil, and serve.
