A winter’s salad
Warm Potato-Watercress Salad heats up cold winter nights
In my Germanic grandfather’s household, potatoes were a staple, and salads made of them were often served warm. This has several advantages: You don’t have to wait for the potatoes to cool, seasonings soak in more effectively, and in the winter, when picnic fare seems out of step, warm potato salad makes a welcome menu addition. Watercress, a cool-weather green, adds a bright bite to this mellow dish.
