Apple 'n Potato Salad

Hmmm ... this is my apple 'n potato salad. At first, I thought of just making the potato salad. However, when the dressing is ready, i find that there are excessive of dressings. Therefore I add some sliced apple into it. Both the potato and apple looks the same in the bowl but the feeling of having to bite the potato and apple from a same salad bowl is somewhat interesting. You'll be wondering whether it's a potato or an apple.

The potatoes need to be boiled till tender. Once tender, peel the skin off (some people may just left the skin on). Then diced the potato.

Preparing the dressing is simple.
2 tablespoon of mayonaise (mine is the eggless mayo)
1 teaspoon of vinegar
Few drops of olive oil
Sprinkle of salt, pepper, thyme and dried parsley
A pinch of sugar

In a bowl, whisk all the ingredient together until it mix well. Add the boiled and diced potato into it. Stir softly.

ps: According to Chef Michel Smith, it is best to add the boiled potato while it still hot as the hot potatoes will absorb as much liquid as it can.

As I love olives, therefore, I add some olive to my salad. Bon apetite .......
