Servings: 6 as a main course
Here is a main-dish salad with flavor that builds with every bite. The potatoes are soaked in wine and broth, and they balance the rich salmon beautifully. But it’s the dreamy, creamy dressing that will have you swooning. Enjoy the dish alfresco with a chilled glass of wine, and feel all your worries slip away.
I'm having fun going through old issues of Fine Cooking and tried this recipe tonight. It was fantastic! I was concerned that I cooked the potatoes a bit too long to be able to finish them on the grill so I roasted them in the oven and they were fine....had to roast at 475 to get them to crisp. I would recommend increasing the amount of salmon. The mustard cream sauce was divine! (I wonder if fromage blanc could be a substitute for the creme fraiche- since the sauce isn't cooked....fromage blanc is kind of like yogurt. It's non-fat quality would be nice!) But I think I'll stick with the creme fraiche- it was so good, I wouldn't want it any other way. Definitely a dinner party recipe!
I absolutely LOVE this dish. I made it all summer whenever we had company and they were all enthralled by the flavours and textures. Delicious!
