Chervil Shallot Potato Salad

This easy and tasty potato salad recipe is from Emeril. And it's a nice alternative to the classic potato salad, which I loveeee:) Plus, I love Emeril recipes, they are full of fat, but usually great taste combinations.

Chervil is often referred to as the “gourmet or French parsley,” and tastes mildly of licorice combined with pepper imparting certain freshness to a dish. Fresh or dried, it is a bright green and quite delicate and should be added to a dish at the end of cooking. Chervil has a tendency to enhance the flavors of other herbs when used in combinations.

You can think of this recipe as a base recipe and add ingredients as you like. I add cooked and diced hot dogs and it becomes a complete meal:)


CHERVIL SHALLOT POTATO SALAD

Ingredients:

10 small red skin potatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup minced shallots
2 tablespoons diced red pepper
Salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
1/2 cup packed chervil leaves

Directions:
In a small saucepan of boiling, salted water boil the potatoes until just tender.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a small saute pan. Add shallots and red pepper, and cook for 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer to a mixing bowl. When potatoes are just tender, drain and add them to bowl along with shallots.

Add vinegar, and toss to coat. Cool salad to room temperature and add chervil. Adjust seasonings.
