Caesar Potato Salad
Posted by kdipaolo at 7/10/01 8:31:26 pm
Note: If making ahead, add enough chicken broth to moisten to desired texture before serving.
Makes: 6 servings
2 1/2 pounds (about 8 red thin-skinned
potatoes, scrubbed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Worcestershire
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
4 anchovy fillets, minced, plus about 5 whole
fillets for garnish (about 1 ounce total)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
Salt and pepper
In a 5- to 6-quart pan, bring 3 quarts water to a boil. Add potatoes, cover, and cook over medium heat until potatoes are just tender when pierced, 30 to 40 minutes.
Remove all but one potato from cooking water; immerse in cold water. When cool, cut potatoes into 1/2-inch-wide slices. Continue to cook remaining potato over medium heat until very soft when pierced, and skin has begun to peel away, 5 to 10 minutes.
Remove potato and cut in half; slice 1 half and add to the other sliced potatoes. Immerse remaining half in cold water until cool to touch, about 3 minutes; peel, cut in half again, and place in a blender with 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Whirl until smooth. Place in a small bowl; immerse bowl just to the rim in cold water until potato puree is cool.
In a medium bowl, combine minced garlic, Worcestershire, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, and minced anchovies. Mix in 2/3 cup of the cooled potato puree; pour over sliced potatoes. (Discard remaining puree or reserve for another use.) Add grated parmesan cheese; gently mix to coat potatoes. Garnish with minced parsley and whole anchovy fillets. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve, or if making ahead, chill up to 1 day.

Cauliflower Salad In reply to
Break a head of cauliflower into small florets, about a quarter size. Bring the cauliflower and water to a boil and stir just only until the moment the cauliflower is not hard (about 5 minutes). Drain it in a colander and put into a bowl. Immediately add about 2 tablespoons of finely chopped onions, salt, pepper, and pour vinegar all over it. After you have done this, stir in sour cream, about 1/2 cup, more or less. You'll know when it is right.

Salt and freshly ground white pepper, to taste
For salad
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup diced fresh artichoke bottoms
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup diced green beans

1/4 cup peeled, seeded and chopped tomato
4 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
12 to 15 radicchio "cups"
To prepare the vinaigrette, combine mustard and vinegar in small bowl. Slowly whisk in the oils. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and set aside. Whisk again when ready to serve.
To prepare the salad, in a small skillet, heat the oil. Season the diced artichokes lightly with salt and pepper, and sauté until al dente, about 3 minutes. Transfer to large bowl and let cool.

Creamed Cucumber Slices In reply to
2 large cucumbers, sliced thin
1 medium onion, sliced thin
4 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 rounded tablespoons sour cream
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Pepper to taste
Place cucumber slices in bowl, salt generously. Set in the refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator after 1 hour and drain off the salted water. Squeeze the cucumber slices to drain additional water. (The salting is optional. It is done to remove some of the moisture from the cucumber so as to prevent thinning of the cream dressing. Whether or not to do it depends on the moisture content of the cucumbers being used. When in doubt, salt.)
Mix together the cucumbers and onions. Combine the vinegar, sour cream, sugar and pepper, making sure that the sugar is dissolved. Pour dressing over the cucumbers and return to refrigerator for several hours.
Will keep in refrigerator for up to 1 week, although the dressing will become thin as cucumbers lose their moisture.
