Pin It Now!
Creamy potato salad



I remember my first temptation of learning how to make potato salad adapted by Jamie oliver, it was a simple one but the freshness of the citrusy dressing could never be forgotten. Its kinda easy peasy method--boiled baby potato, tossed in lost of chopped fresh dill and the basic vinaigrette just fresh lemon juice and olive oil, the salad could possibly to be a versatile taste.

After confessing Jamie oliver potato salad as it was bright, now, of course it is my turn to share something quality somewhat addictive ;))
Everyone has different ways of making their favorite potato salad and its personal legitimate.
I choose a creamy potato salad, super creamy--underline “I prefer extra creamy" :)
the  crunchy and extra creamy mess are delicious contrasts, oh I don’t need to be sorry for admission of guilt of having a super-duper heavy stuff, this is a speciality and surely ain’t change to fit.
