POTATO AND SMOKED TROUT SALAD
with Horseradish Vinaigrette
Serves 6 (easily doubled for a crowd)
3 pounds small boiling potatoes
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup good quality mayonnaise
1/3 cup whole milk Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons bottled white horseradish
1 teaspoon sugar
1/3 cup chopped chives
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 pound smoked trout, boned and shredded
Cook the potatoes in a large pot of boiling water to cover. Drain, cut into quarters and turn into a large bowl. Toss with the apple cider vinegar while still hot.
In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, yogurt, horseradish, and sugar. Turn this into the bowl with the potatoes and toss to coat. Toss in the chives and season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss in the trout or arrange on top of the salad.
