Light Potato Cucumber Salad

Posted on

Origin

I tried a French salad which had a similar taste and tried to recreate it with significantly more cucumber and less potato.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 fingerling potatoes
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • salt

Process

Bring a small pot of salted water to boil. Boil the potatoes whole until they are soft, about 10 minutes. Rinse in cold water and set aside until cool.

Meanwhile, peel alternating strips off the cucumber and dice it. Mix it liberally with salt and set it in a strainer to drain.

In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, black pepper, rice vinegar and mustard and set aside.

When the potatoes are cool, dice them and mix them together with the cucumbers. Toss the potatoes and cucumbers with the yogurt mixture to lightly cover them.
