This is a recipe from my father who learned his cooking skills in
Europe,and one that he used in large quantity in his restaurants. * Mature
potatoes are of course older and have less moisture content than the "new"
or baby or spring potatoes and hold up better with type of recipe plus they
have greater starch content for binding such a salad. Cook potatoes by your
favorite method reserving the hot salted cooking water. Peel and slice or
cube when warm enough to handle.Place in a large bowl.Stir in the mayo,
vinegar, oil, onion, parsley salt and pepper to taste while potatoes are
warm. Now use as much hot boiled water as needed to make the mixture "
creamy " by adding the water gradually and mixing all well. Readjust salt
and pepper if needed. Serve warm or chilled. May add some fresh chopped
dill to the salad if desired. The additional water must be boiling so as to
produce a creamy dressing. Note: homemade mayo is best but storebought
makes a good substitution and I always use it.
