    You really don’t need mayonnaise for this potato salad. The sour tang of pickled lemon and the deep umami of the anchovy are lifted by the freshness of the parsley. All that is needed is some good olive oil to bring all the ingredients together. The chilli flakes are optional but add piquancy. For this recipe I used hard boiled eggs steeped in a turmeric/water solution overnight to colour them yellow but ordinary hard-boiled eggs will be just as good.


    Ingredients (serves 2)
    225g waxy new potatoes, boiled and cut into chunks
    1 or 2 hard boiled eggs cut into chunks
    1 tbsp finely chopped pickled lemon
    2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
    4 finely chopped anchovy fillets
    1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    Chilli flakes (optional)

    Mix everything together in a bowl. Sprinkle with chilli flakes if using.

  2. Very nice! This is something that can be easily adapted to rutabagas (swede) and a variety of other root vegetables. Now, is pickled lemon = preserved lemon? I first thought those big yellow things were that, but now I see that those are the eggs.

    Yes - preserved lemons. The lemons are chopped finely. Maybe I should amend it to say preserved lemon.

    Hey...I was going to make this for my next parsley recipe. :mad:
    Turnabout is fair play I guess. I beat @morning glory to the Cod en Papillote recipe earlier in the contest.

    :laugh: Lots of ways you could vary a potato salad - I have a few more like this.

    I made several different types when I worked for a catering company. :wink:
