Easy hot potato salad recipe. Very easy and delicious vegetable salad with French dressing, mayonnaise, and sour cream. You may prepare French Dressing at home:
French Dressing Recipe
Ingredients: 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper, 3 parts oil, 1 part vinegar
Instructions: Crushed garlic, dry mustard, and chopped fresh herbs may be added. Garlic, mustard, salt, and black pepper first mixed with the oil, then the vinegar is added and all are well mixed. Fresh chopped herbs are added last.
Oils vary. Some people prefer olive, others like safflower or peanut, or perhaps a combination of 2 oils.
We’re faced with a large choice of vinegar today-cider, red wine, white wine, and flavored vinegar such as garlic, tarragon, red or white oregano, basil, or thyme. I prefer freshly squeezed lemon juice with some salads, particularly seafood salad. A clove of garlic slivered, put into the oil, and left overnight gives a delicious flavor. Ripe olives covered with olive oil and left overnight or for a few days give a distinctive ripe olive flavor.
