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.
