For this French-style potato salad, toss the warm potatoes with broth or wine so they absorb the flavor of the liquid. If you can get a delicious French garlic sausage, this would be a great place to use it.
- For the Potatoes:
- 1 pound boiling potatoes (about 3), peeled, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices
- 3 tablespoons canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- For the Dressing:
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1 1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- For the Sausages:
- 1/2 pound smoked sausage, such as kielbasa, quartered lengthwise and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 large head romaine lettuce, shredded (about 2 quarts)
FOR THE POTATOES:
Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan of salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain the potatoes and put them in a glass or stainles steel bowl. Add the chicken broth and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt to the warm potatoes and toss gently.
FOR THE DRESSING:
Meanwhile, in a large glass or stainless steel bowl, whisk together the mustard, vinegar, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Add the oil slowly, whisking.
FOR THE SAUSAGES:
Put a large nonstick frying pan over moderate heat. Add the smoked sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sausage is brown and warmed through, about 3 minutes. Remove the sausage and drain on paper towels.
Toss the potatoes with 2 tablespoons of the dressing and the parsley. Toss the romaine into the remaining dressing. Put the lettuce on plates and top with the potatoes and sausage.
Tip: WINE RECOMMENDATION:<br>
The French often serve a simple and straightforward, fresh and fruity Beaujolais with smoked sausage and potato salad. Who are we to argue?
