Sandy D’Amato uses an old-school European technique for adding flavor to the potatoes, while keeping it all bright and contemporary.


4 6-ounce local russet potatoes, peeled, diced small
1 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup diced dill pickle
3 tablespoons capers, well drained
1 cup lightly packed sorrel leaves, cut into thin ribbons
6 large hard-boiled eggs, peeled, diced small
Chive & Lemon Caviar Dressing
Kosher or sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook 3-5 minutes, until tender but not falling apart. Drain well and place in a small bowl.

Add wine while potatoes are still warm. Let sit until cool; drain again. In a large bowl, mix pickle, capers, sorrel, eggs, and drained potatoes with enough Chive & Lemon Caviar Dressing (prepared a day ahead) to moisten. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve as is or top with Wild-Salmon Roulades.
