Creamy potato and artichoke salad (very light)

If you're a fan of potato salads, this is a creamy dressed one (and I mean with a real creamy and delicious, full mouth-feel) which is also incredibly light. With a Mediterranean taste from the artichokes and the raw red onion and olives, you'll surely like it. I'm quite proud of this creation. 
First made it for greeting my folks when they came over for Christmas (I needed something I could make in advance because I also wanted to be able to pick them up in person from the airport and not just send Bogdan to get them :). ) A nice meal for having guests over or for your day-to-day dinner. Enjoy.

Last year: Bacon and eggs breakfast with a fresh touch and Vegetable stock

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 1 kg potatoes 
  • 150 g simple yogurt
  • 1-2 tablespoons home-made mustard (sweet)
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (curcuma) powder 
  • 175 g artichoke hearts from the jar
  • 15-20 pitted black olives
  • 1 teaspoon condimento balsamico bianco (white balsamic vinegar)
  • salt and pepper to taste (optional, we didn't add any, the dressing was enough)

Boil the potatoes whole for about 40 minutes. Then peel them and chop them up into thick slices. Also chop up the drained artichokes and mix them with the potatoes in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix the mustard, yogurt, turmeric and balsamic vinegar.

Pour the dressing over the salad and mix well:

Transfer the salad to a serving dish:

Top it with black olives and red onion slices. It's done :). Dig in!
