Potato Salad with Dill + Horseradish Aioli

This came across Pinterest and looked really good. And I thought it would be really good with a fish like salmon or tuna.  I showed D and he said ok.

We had with salmon.  It was really good, and D seemed to make it fast considering I was watching TV and playing with the dogs in the living room.

We would have again.

2 lb – 3 oz small new potatoes
15-20 red and yellow cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
2 cups fresh sugarsnap peas, sliced lengthwise
1 large handful of fresh dill, coarsely chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Horseradish Dressing
2 egg yolks
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¾ cup canola oil
1 tablespoon prepared horesradish

Place the potatoes in a saucepan with just enough cold salted water to cover. Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer for 15 minutes. Test with a small sharp knife. If the potatoes fall off the knife, they’re done.

Drain and set aside to cool.

To make the horseradish dressing, whisk the egg yolks, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon salt. Slowly drizzle in the canola oil while whisking nonstop until the mixture begins to emulsify. Continue to whisk in the oil until mixture has achieved a thick, mayonnaise-like consistency. Whisk in the horseradish and, if necessary, season with additional salt and pepper.

Combine the tomatoes, peas and dill in a large serving bowl.

When the potatoes have cooled, transfer them to the serving bowl. Pour the dressing over them and toss with your hands to coat with the aioli. Serve.
