1/2 pound baby red rose potatoes (new potatoes)
1/2 pound baby white rose potatoes
1/2 pound small blue (or purple) potatoes
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/8 cup ranch dressing
1/2 Tablespoon champagne vinegar (or white vinegar)
1/4 teaspoon dried dill weed
Pinch of sugar (optional)
1/4 cup thin-sliced green onions(scallions),tops included
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Grape tomatoes for garnish
Simmer red, white, and blue potatoes, skins on, in salted water until tender, but not mushy. Let cool until easy enough to handle, but still warm. Cut into 1-inch pieces. Combine mayonnaise, ranch dressing, champagne vinegar, dill weed, and optional sugar. Pour over warm potatoes and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate 2 hours or more to let flavors meld. Let come to room temperature to serve. Garnish with grape tomatoes. Recipe may be easily doubled.
*Notes: Waxy potatoes such as red rose, white rose, blue, purple, and gold potatoes are best for potato salad because they are not grainy or mealy and hold together well. You may substitute chopped chives for the green onions. Makes 6 servings.
