The grass is finally green, the skies are blue and the sun is shining, so why not pack yourself a picnic and take it to a park in your neighbourhood or even Prince’s Island Park? All you need is a loaf of bread, some cheese, veggies, this potato and artichoke salad and a jug of lemonade. I would even suggest having a picnic for one since a day outside on a blanket with a book sounds soul-soothing.
‘Rock Your World’ Potato & Artichoke Salad (from dansgoodside.com)
3 red potatoes
1 jar marinated artichokes (6 oz)
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
Salt & Pepper
Start by filling a pot 2/3 full with water, then add some salt, how much you ask? Here is a great line from one of my favorite Food Network guys, Anthony Sedlak: ‘It should taste like the sea!’ So salt away! Rinse, then chop the potatoes into 1″ cubes and place in the pot. Bring to a boil, and let them bubble away for about 8 minutes. You still want a bit of a bite to the potatoes, so don’t let them get too tender! Strain and set aside to cool.
Next, slice up your carrot, cucumber, and radishes. Personally, I think the thinner the better, but as long as their ‘bite-size’ you should be alright. Take the (now cool) potatoes and combine all off the veggies into a bowl. Add in the jar of marinated artichokes (liquid too!), sour cream, & white wine vinegar. Combine until everything is evenly coated, then salt & pepper to taste! Now enjoy that picnic!
