Classic summer yellow fleshed potato salad, bound with a creamy hard-boiled egg dressing, elevated with the addition of assorted berries and arugula for an unexpected twist.


Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Yield: 8 servings


5 medium yellow-fleshed potatoes (about 2 lbs/1 kg)

2 hard cooked eggs, peeled

½ cup (125 mL) mayonnaise

1/3 cup (75 mL) 35% whipping cream

¼ cup (60 mL) sour cream

2 tbsp (30 mL) Dijon mustard

1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh lemon juice

4 green onions, green parts only, thinly sliced

¼ cup (60 mL) loosely packed, thinly sliced fresh mint


2 cups (500 mL) mixed berries (such as, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries)

1 cup (250 mL) firmly packed baby arugula leaves, stems removed

1 tbsp (15 mL) balsamic vinegar


1. Scrub potatoes and dice into ¾-inch (2 cm) pieces. Cook in large pot of salted water until tender. Drain well; let cool slightly.


2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mash eggs with a fork. Whisk in mayonnaise, whipping cream, sour cream, mustard, lemon juice, onions, and mint, until creamy. Add warm potatoes to dressing; season to taste with salt. Cover and refrigerate until serving.


3. To serve, in a medium bowl toss berries, arugula and balsamic vinegar; reserve some of the berries and arugula. Fold berry mixture into potato salad. Serve in a bowl or on a platter; garnish with reserved berries and arugula.


Chef's Tip: There are many varieties of yellow-fleshed potatoes. They have a wonderful flavour and texture, perfect for potato salad. Look for Yukon Golds, Agria and Kennebec potatoes - all of these are perfect for this salad.
