Danny's Favourite Salad
Danny dislikes mayonnaise, even the homemade variety. Over the years, I've worked out some impressive potato salads using a number of different dressings. This is a current favourite, so I'll post the recipe here.
The peas, are from the garden, cooked in lettuce, a few tablespoons of water, and a pinch of sugar. Cover them tightly and cook over medium heat for about ten minutes. Refresh under cold water.
I didn't catch the salmon, that came from a tin.
Danny's Favourite Two Potato Salad:
1 lb. small red potatoes, diced
1 lb Yukon Gold potatoes, diced
1 large green bell pepper, finely diced
1 heaping tablespoon imitation bacon bits
1 heaping tablespoon dehydrated minced onion
1/3 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Black pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
1 tablespoon honey
Boil the potatoes until tender. Drain. Combine in a large bowl with pepper, bacon bits, and onion. Mix remaining ingredients in a cup to make dressing. Pour over still warm potatoes and gently mix. Chill several hours before serving.
