Julia Child, television personality and author of the revolutionary cookbook called Mastering the Art of French Cooking, needs no introduction. More often than not, we look for her recipes when we need to satisfy our French food cravings. However, her American-style potato salad is worth a try.

Aside from bacon goodness, hard-boiled eggs, and the classic combo of celery and pickles, it also calls for reserving some of the potato-cooking water and adding it back into the salad. Why? Let’s find out!

Steps

1
Done

Peel potatoes and cut them in half or quarters lengthwise; then cut crosswise into a half-inch thick slices.

2
Done

Place the potatoes in a saucepan, cover them with water, and add 1 ½ teaspoon of salt per quart of water. Bring to boil and cook until just cooked through (approximately 5 minutes). Save a cup of the cooking liquid and drain the rest.

3
Done

Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Combine apple cider vinegar with ⅓ cup of the potato water and evenly sprinkle this over the potato slices. Let marinate for 10 minutes.

4
Done

Chop onions, celery, bacon, pickles, hard-boiled eggs, and scallions, then season everything to taste. Top with ⅔ cup of mayonnaise and gently toss to coat.

5
Done

Refrigerate the salad for an hour. Before serving, let it come back to room temperature.

6
Done

To serve, line a bowl with red-leaf lettuce and place the salad on top. Garnish with red pepper, tomatoes, and parsley.

Slicing potatoes before boiling reduces the overall cooking time significantly. The simple trick of reserving some potato-cooking water and adding it back into the salad makes it blissfully creamy. Plus, when you combine it with mayonnaise, it creates a velvety sauce that perfectly coats the potatoes. Be sure to give Julia Child's potato salad a try!

Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
