Basil Potato Salad
I can't get enough of the basil in my garden, and this is one of the yummiest ways to use it!
A friend gave me a version of this recipe a long time ago, and I've tweaked it to my taste. I hadn't made it in a long time, but pulled it out of my recipe vault recently and made it for Boyfriend and I for dinner. He loved it, but has now tweaked it to his liking, and I must say, it's now better than ever. Enjoy the result!
- Toss the potatoes and onion in a large bowl.
- Mix dressing ingredients with a fork in a smaller bowl. Salt and pepper to taste. Check for your taste before pouring over other ingredients.
- Drizzle dressing over potatoes/onions and toss, coating with the dressing.
- Mix in chopped basil leaves right before serving.
You can make the whole salad a day ahead, adding the basil right before serving keeps it fresh, green and pretty! And you can keep leftovers for a few days after making, the basil just gets a little brown - it's still yummy!
