If you’re looking for something a little different, try this Fingerling Potato and Prosciutto Salad.
Fingerling potatoes are a small, stubby, finger-shaped potato. They’re a little odd looking, but they’re fun to use in recipes because people don’t expect to see them!
In this recipe, the potatoes are tossed with a lightly creamy dressing. They’re not smothered in it as you see in other potato salad recipes. Thin slices of prosciutto are mixed in, and they make a delicious addition.
Shallots, parsley and fresh sage round out the flavors in this salad. It’s the perfect sort of potato salad to serve at a nicer, more intimate gathering. People will appreciate that you made something new!
