A little too fancy recipe but worth it. This would end up into a simple potato salad. The highlight here is not exactly the potato salad; it is the heavenly creamy and delicious dressing that’s made out of this recipe. This recipe includes how to make the mayonnaise dressing in just 3 easy steps, so easy and done in 30 minutes. The resulting dressing fits any salad, either Caesar salad or potato salad. On the other hand, preparing the potato salad is quick and no hassle; you could easily have this fancy dish with just a few steps. Another good thing is, only ½ cup of the prepared mayo dressing is used for the salad, the rest can be used for future salad preparations or can serve as a yummy vegetable dip. Now, here’s what you need and how to make it.
Serves: 6
  • For the mayonnaise dressing: 2 small garlic cloves, mashed to a paste with ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste (5 g)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (30 ml)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard (5 g)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (5 ml)
  • cup bottled mayonnaise (110 g)
  • cup plain yogurt (120 ml)
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan (50 g)
  • For the salad: 4 medium white potatoes
  • 1 tsp. salt (5 g)
  • ½ tsp. white pepper (2.5 g)
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. chopped parsley (15 g)
  • 1 tbsp. chopped dill pickles (15 g)
  • Lettuce leaf
  1. Make the mayonnaise dressing: In a large bowl, whisk together garlic paste, anchovy paste, lemon juice, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.
  2. Stir in mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, and pepper to taste, and then whip the dressing until it is thoroughly combined. (This makes about 1⅓ cups of mayonnaise dressing and can be prepared in 30 minutes or less).
  3. Refrigerate dressing while preparing the salad.
  4. Prepare the salad: In a covered pot with enough water, boil potatoes in their jackets until tender. Drain and let the potatoes cool. Peel and cut potatoes into small pieces. Season well with salt and white pepper.
  5. Add all other ingredients and combine well.
  6. Pour ½ cup of the prepared mayonnaise dressing over the salad. Refrigerate the remaining dressing for future use or serve as a yummy dip.
  7. Chill potato salad for about 30 minutes to 1 hour and then serve on a lettuce leaf.
