A French potato salad is so simple to make at home and is one that most people usually love and want more of!
Good quality waxy potatoes are needed for this salad and of course some wonderfully fragrant fresh herbs.
Waxy potatoes have a thin, paper like skin that can be scratched off. They are better for this type of recipe because they will hold their shape when cooked unlike the floury varieties which make better mashed potato recipes.
Desiree is a good all round waxy potato variety for roasting, making French fries and for salads. Some other waxy variety potatoes are Maris Piper, Anya, Charlotte, Estima, and Maris Bard.
Red skin potatoes, new potatoes, and fingerling potatoes also are considered waxy varieties.
These varieties have a lower starch content, so they hold their shape when cooked.
should be kept in a cool dark place and if there are any shoots on them throw them out if the potato is soft. But if it is still firm, cut them out to the root. If they are going green, throw them away or if it is just a little green, cut it away and eat the white part only.
Don't worry, you have a choice to print the photo or not, when you click print! ;-)
