Mr. Potato Head Returns
I again interrupt my break to bring you a photo of this New Potato Spinach Artichoke Salad with Pine Nut Dressing.
Those of you that have been around for a while, know about our love of spuds in our house and the reigning Mr. Potato Head!
This salad will appear in my next VegNews article (July/Aug) issue, and you're gonna' love it! The Pine Nut Dressing is earthy and tangy, and gives a slight creaminess that is still light rather than the typical heavy mayonnaise dressings used in potato salads.
The entire salad is superb! I personally love it still warm, but it is also ideal for packing to tote on picnics or casual summer lunches.
It's kind of odd working on food articles months in advance, trying to envision what dishes we'd most enjoy that particular time of year and what produce items are seasonal. Also fun right now though... it's getting me in the feel of spring and summer!
Ok, I have more writing to get back to. Will be back with you soon... (and remember what you need to do, um - rhymes with stick, pick, flick, trick, kick?!)
