Expert Tips

  • Any small red potatoes with the skins left on would also work beautifully in this recipe.
  • Experiment with your favorite crumbly cheese, such as stilton or goat. Scallions could easily be substituted for the shallots.
  • This salad tastes best fresh. If you can’t serve within two hours, simply refrigerate then allow salad to return to room temperature before enjoying.
