Provencal Potato Salad

 provencal potato7



This recipe is from Ina Garten's original cookbook, The Barefoot Contessa. It is similar to my salade nicoise, and is our favorite year round hearty salad.

I use Dijon mustard as well as whole grain mustard, because I love the little mustard seeds. I also skip the fresh dill, only because I don't grow it in the garden, therefore never have it on hand!



Provencal Potato Salad (adapted from Barefoot Contessa)

1 recipe of Ina's French Potato Salad (click here for recipe)

1/2 pound haricots verts, stems removed
two 6-ounce cans Italian tuna, drained and flaked
1/2 cup capers, drained
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup small-diced red onion
1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted
6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and quartered, optional
6 anchovy fillets, optional



Directions

1. In a pot of boiling salted water, blanch haricots verts for 3 to 5 minutes, until barely tender. Drain and immerse into ice water for 5 minutes. Drain again.

2. In a large bowl, combine the haricots verts with the potato salad, tuna, capers, tomatoes, onions, olives, eggs, and anchovy fillets. Serve at room temperature.

I just bought plenty of potato from the market. Seems like a good idea to use them for this salad. Looks insanely good Stacey!

I think I'll make this for dinner this week - our kids are at camp and we can eat "adult" food!! Thanks for the great post and beautiful picture!!

It's a double bonus when you get two egg yolks for the price of one. The first time it happened to me, I felt like I won a prize. This is a gorgeous salad, as always. LOVE hericot verts.

I've never found the haricots verts here in MS. I meant to order seed and grow them, but our garden is pitiful this year. We've only got tomatoes growing right now.

With all the horse showing by me and tournament bass fishing by hubby, our garden fell to the way side.

The potato salad looks very good. Love the double yolk boiled egg.

This looks fabulous! I love potato salad almost as much as I love pasta salad!
