Fingerling Potato Salad

Today I’m making Fingerling Potato Salad to go along with my Sweet And Tangy Chicken Drumettes. The link for these delicious drumettes will be available at the link below.

Fingerling potatoes are a small, stubby, finger-shaped type of potato whick may be any heritage potato. They are really creamy and delicious, and perfect for this application.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yields: 4 servings
Equipment: large mixing bowl, cook’s spoon, chef’s knife, colander, 1 (6-quart) saucepot

1 1/2 pound bag of Fingerling potatoes, cut into large bite-size chunks (appox. 2 inches)
2 ribs of celery, diced
1/2 cup of red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1/4 cup of red onion, diced
1/2 cup of fresh dill ,finely chopped
3/4 cup of good mayonnaise (add more if needed)
1 1/2 tablespoons of Kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper

Note:  It’s really important to make sure the cooked potatoes are drained well before adding them to the dressing.
 Dice all the vegatables relatively the same size for this dish.
Note: The potatoes shold be cooked so they’re soft, tender, and creamy.

In a sausepot and the potatoes, cover with water in cold by an inch. Cook over medium-high heat bringing them to a boil to ensure even cooking. Add Kosher salt to the water to season the potatoes during cooking. Reduce the heat and simmer until fork-tender, anywhere between 5 and 8 minutes.
Transfer the potatoes to a colander to drain then return them to the hot pot (off the heat) to release any excess water that may remain in the potatoes. It’s very important the potatoes be dry of any water before dressing them.

In a large mixing bowl, add the diced celery, red bell pepper, onion, fresh dill, mayonnaise, Kosher salt, and fresh ground black pepper. Stir to combine. Add the potatoes while they’re still hot to the dressing. This will ensure the potatoes soak up all the flavor from the dressing. Gently stir to combine. Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve. I’ll be serving them alongside my Sweet And Tangy Chicken Drumettes. You can find my link for my recipe below.

There you have it, my homemade Fingerling Potato Salad.
