Another two part post, the mayonnaise recipe here works on its own as well as perfectly complimenting potato salad.
Yields about 2 cups
4 egg yolks
1 tbsp montreal steak spice
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp sugar
4 to 5 tbsp lemon juice or white vinegar
1-1/2 cups olive or other salad oil ( I used Canola oil)
2 tbsp hot water
Beat yolks, sugar, spice, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice in a small bowl until very thick and pale yellow. (Note: If using electric mixer, beat at medium speed.) Add about 1/4 cup oil, drop by drop, beating vigorously. Beat in 1 teaspoon each lemon juice and hot water. beating constantly, repeat this process until measured ingredients used up. If you like, thin mayonnaise with a little additional hot water. Cover and refrigerate until needed. Do not keep longer than 1 week.
Old Fashioned Potato Salad Recipe
Ingredients: Serves 4
Homemade Mayonnaise above.
4 cups boiled, peeled and cubed potatoes
1/4 cup sugar
1 pinch of turmeric
2 teaspoons butter
Heat mayonnaise on medium in a sauce pan. Stir butter into the Mayo and let the mixture cool, stirring often. Dressing will keep thickening as it cools.
Pour dressing over potatoes and mix lightly until thoroughly combined.
I made a simple stir fry to incorporate with my potato salad.
2 green onions, chopped
100 grams of diced honey ham
1/2 a cup of corn nibblets
1 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette
Fry the ham in the salad dressing in a pan until browned. Add the corn and onions, and cook a further 2-3 minutes. Add mixture on top of potato salad. Serve.
