Potato salad can be made well in
advance and is therefore a useful buffet dish. Its popularity means that
there are very rarely any leftovers. Toss: To roughly mix ingredients such as salad
and dressing or pasta and vegetables, using your hands or a fork and spoon.
Flavored vinegars make a huge
difference to the taste of a salad dressing. They are very simple to
make, and the jars are a pretty windowsill decoration. Try the same
recipe with nasturtium flowers, if you like.
