This is a wonderful and easy salad with potatoes, chanterelles, shallots and cilantro, that goes perfectly with any BBQ dishes, or even a light lunch all by itself. Bacon and goat cheese could be added to the salad to create a even more satisfying meal.

One no-recipe salad. Just throw anything you like and left in the fridge into a serving dish, and you have a salad you love. Serve it with a yoghurt dressing.

Potato and Chanterelle Salad

Adapted from Essen und Trinken
  • 750 g Potatoes
  • Salt and freshly mulled black pepper
  • 2 Shallots
  • 200 g Chanterelles
  • 1 tbsp Sunflower oil
  • 2 tbsp Raspberry vinegar
  • 150 ml Chicken bouillon
  • 1 tbsp Cilantro, chopped
  1. Place the potatoes and 1 tablespoon of salt in a large pot of water. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for about 18 minutes or until fork tender. Cool and peel. Cut potatoes into bite sized chunks or thin slices. Place the cut potatoes in a large bowl.
  2. Finely dice the shallots. Rinse the chanterelles, drain and pat them dry to remove all excess liquid. Chop the large ones. Heat the oil in the pan over medium heat. Add shallots and stir for a minute. Stir in chanterelles and cook for 3 minute more. Remove and add the chanterelles to the potatoes.
  3. Pour the vinegar and chicken bouillon into the same pan. Bring it to a boil. Pour into the salad. Toss well, cover, and set aside for 30 minutes to allow the flavours to blend. Mix in chopped cilantro. Taste with salt and pepper. Serve with grilled chicken or steak.

I'm loving your potato salad. Also like the touch of raspberry in it. One of my favorite vinaigrettes is a raspberry one.

Ilke 2/8/11 13:14

I think you can not go wrong with cold potato salad on a hot summer day! Any ideas for yogurt dressing?

Eva 2/8/11 14:57

I love chanterelles. O wonder if this would work with sweet potatoes (they are better for you).

I love the idea of a potato salad Angie! Gorgeous!

It is most definitely salad season with the hot temperatures we are having right now! We are having a cold tuna salad tonight.

I love the sound of the potato and chanterelle salad with the bright vinaigrette! Both salads are beautiful.

They both look beautiful. I'll have a bowl of each :D

Claudia 3/8/11 03:37

I prefer potato salads with vinegar and not mayo - the addition of the chicken bouillon interests me - never would have thought of that. I could make this a meal. The photos are so very lovely.

Kristen 3/8/11 04:11

That is a salad I could love; so many great things are in it. Gorgeous pictures, too.

MaryMoh 3/8/11 10:30

I would love a healthy day with these salads....mmmm...delicious!

Beth 3/8/11 11:24

Your potato salad looks absolutely terrific. I'd almost certainly add the bacon!

Two gorgeous salads! This is like a two-for-one post!

Yummy salads. Beautiful food photos.

What a lovely salad for summer. Looks unique and delicious.

nancy at good food matters 3/8/11 16:05

It's the chanterelles that make this potato salad exceptional. I'm excited because a local farmer is beginning to successfully cultivate them---something unknown to this southern part of the United States.

Gina 3/8/11 19:53

Hi Angie,
I love you idea of just throwing leftovers in a bowl, sometimes I find the best combinations that way. The potato salad sounds yummy too.
Hope you are having a great week.

Tanantha 3/8/11 23:04

The no-recipe caught my attention. You can really make anything delicious Angie!

Angie's Recipes 4/8/11 18:53

I wonder that too...maybe it's time for me to get some sweet potatoes.

Magic of Spice 4/8/11 22:37

I love chanterelles and I bet they are wonderful with potatoes...great combination :)

Kris 4/8/11 23:16

They both look so amazing!

Elies_Lie 12/8/11 06:56

Omg! just looking at the photo makes me craving
Amazing salad! I want! :D
