For every one who is bored, or not especially enamored with, potato salad (that’s me); and for those (millions) of you who need an easy side dish to serve or bring to their cookout, Caesar Potato Salad is today’s hero dish.
It is as good as it sounds: tender new potatoes tossed in a savory, creamy classic Caesar dressing with the requisite lemon, parmesan, and yes– anchovies. Those little fish lend important depth of flavor without prominent fishiness. (Unless you are vegetarian, I implore you to not leave them out.) Feel free to make the potato salad hours (or even a day) in advance, but toss in the lettuce at the end so it stays bright and crisp.
Make this simple dish, and it will make you a cookout hero.
Happy Fourth of July!
