It's Friday! Yay! Can you tell I'm excited? I have so many recipes planned to make this weekend. I'm baking cupcakes with my niece on Saturday and on Sunday I'm making traditional Armenian food in memory of my dad. I can't wait to get started. Until then, I have the recipe for the potato salad I posted yesterday for my Sunday Southern Supper.
White Wine, Shallots and Vinegar Potato Salad
1-2 pounds red potatoes cut in halves
1 cup dry white wine, I used Chardonnay
2 medium shallots minced
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tablepsoon chopped fresh chives
zest of a lemon
1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (this depends on how many pounds of potatoes used)
salt & pepper to taste
Boil potatoes until tender. Drain and set aside.
In a medium saucepan, combine wine, shallots, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until mixture is reduced by half. Remove from heat, stir in vinegar, then whisk in olive oil. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine potatoes, wine mixture, chives and lemon zest. Toss until potatoes are coated with dressing. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
Serve at room temperature.
What do you have planned this weekend?
