Caesar Potato Salad
Unbeknownst to me I made a version of this slad early in the season. I visit to the farmer’s market yielded a limited hall of potatoes, sugar snaps, and green onions. I started out making a simple salad out of the ingredients, and that left me flat so i had to amp things up a bit. Instead of a true ceasar I created a Spanish style dressing rich with the flavors of garlic, pimenton, and anchovies.  Punctuated by the sweet pops of the peas, it was a fabulous salad, and this version looks equally enticing.
This is a very friendly salad. It will work well alongside just about any meat and once you’ve gotten past the acidic flavor profile you’ll find it works surprisingly well with a broad range of wines. I am most likely to serves this with a spicy grilled chicken dish and as such would be looking for a refreshing white wine with some weight and substance to it. This is a great time to try out some of the better Pinot Gris/Grigios on the market and a new world style would have the weight I’m looking for.
