Baby Potato Salad with Apples & Chives

Hello everyone!

I was am quite excited and nervous to be writing this first post for my beloved blog and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it. You should know that I have written and re-written this post about zillion times.. sigh!!

As I said already it is my first post, it is but obvious that hundreds of recipes were racing through my mind to give my blog a grand inauguration I think it deserves! 🙂

After thinking about it for over a day (which seemed like forever!!!), I told my brain to ‘keep it simple, silly!’ 😉

So here I make a humble entrance into blogging world by posting this beautiful summer salad using baby potatoes and apples.

Potato Salad with Apples & Chives2

A perfect side to any elaborate meal/ backyard BBQ/ picnic

Apples add a sweet crunch to every bite of this refreshing potato salad.

You can easily double the recipe if serving a larger crowd.

I hope you enjoy! 🙂

Baby Potato Salad with Apples & Chives

Servings: 5

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup baby potatoes, cut in quarters
  • 2 Tbsp minced celery
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 1 gala apple, peeled and diced into half inch cubes
  • 2 Tbsp minced chives
  • 1 tsp mustard (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider / red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp eggless lite mayonnaise (I used American Garden’s)
  • salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions:

Boil potatoes in salted water until soft, approx 10-14 minutes, or until soft if pierced with a fork. Drain and let cool.

While potatoes are boiling, combine onion, celery, mustard, olive oil, vinegar and mayonnaise and season with salt and pepper. Mix and let the flavors marinade while the potatoes cook. Once the potatoes are done and cool, mix into the bowl and add chives and apples, additional salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
