Based on a recipe passed down from Anna Pump’s Danish grandmother, this European-style potato salad is dressed with a mustardy vinaigrette along with capers, chives, and fresh parsley.
Ingredients: 2 tablespoons drained capers,1 teaspoon coarse-grained Dijon mustard,1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley,1/2 cup finely chopped fresh chives or green onion tops,1 tablespoon caper liquid from jar,1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil,3 tablespoons white wine vinegar,3 pounds medium Yukon Gold potatoes (each about 3 inches in diameter)
Instructions: Cook potatoes in large pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain potatoes; cool 30 minutes. Peel potatoes, if desired; cut into 1/3-inch-thick slices. Place potatoes in large bowl. Add chives, parsley, and capers. Combine vinegar, caper liquid, and mustard in small bowl. Whisk in oil. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper. Pour dressing over potatoes; toss gently. Season salad with salt and pepper. (Can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.)
