Potato salad, there are infinite variation to this dish. I have a got to recipe for picnics and that’s more of a side dish for dinner. I had to improvise a little on the ingredients when I made this for Easter, but I’ll share my usual recipe.

Peel and slice potatoes, layering them in dish. After each layer, sprinkle on salt, pepper, shallots, chopped tarragon and chives.
