the tangy dressing and the dill really complimented each other and went well with the selection of barbequed meat that was being served! this recipe was in my everyday canadian living favourites cookbook. it's contains tons of great recipes that I am itching to try. they are all simple and generally contain ingredients that most people would find in their cabinets on a regular basis.
this can be made in no time. boil the potatoes and while doing so you can chop up your veggies and make up the dressing. throw it all in a big bowl and stare at the colours!
I really liked the dressing. it was oil, lemon juice, dijon mustard, salt and pepper and a dash of sugar. the lemon was a really nice flavour and had just enough punch that you could taste it but not in a overwhelming sense.
dijon mustard is not a favourite of mine but it was really nice in this salad. this is the finished product. had I not overcooked the potatoes there is a chance it would look more appetizing but I guess it really doesn't matter because who knows what it ends up looking like in your tummy!
2 stalks of celery
half a red onion
1/4 cup of fresh dill
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
salt and pepper
1/4 tsp sugar
boil the potatoes in hot, salted water for 10-15 minutes or until you can pierce them with a fork. in the meantime, chop up your vegetables and half of the dill and put it in a bowl. once the potatoes are done, chop them into quarters and add them to the vegetables. whisk the dressing in a small bowl, add to salad and toss.
