Sweet Pickle Potato Salad

Here is another recipe the entire family loves. It is simple and easy to make too. I was surprised at what a big hit it was.

Use red-skinned boiling potatoes, not red-skinned new potatoes.

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle the pickle juice over the warm potatoes, then toss gently. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and fold gently into the potatoes using a rubber spatula. Serve or refrigerate, covered. Bring to room temperature before serving.

*Buttermilk: We don't buy a quart of buttermilk and then only use 1/3 of a cup for this recipe. If you have it on hand, that's great, use it. If you don't, then "make" some by adding 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar to the 1/3 cup of milk. The book says to let it stand for 5 minutes and it's done. I let it stand 20 minutes (if you think I'm doing that wrong, send a note to "nick_@_maikoff . net" - leave out the underscores, spaces, and quotes in the email address, thanks!).
