Hi, I'm Ellen Adams from And today I'm going to be making a no mayonnaise Italian potato salad. I've got about two pounds of boiled potatoes and these are just white potatoes. And now I'm going to add a quarter cup of balsamic vinegar, two quarter cup of chicken broth. Just add those together. Combine them a little bit and I'm just going to pour them right over our potatoes. For our dressing I'm going to start with a quarter cup of white vinegar. And you just add that into a small bowl. I have three quarters of a cup of olive oil. There we go. I have a half a teaspoon of oregano. I'm going to add in a clove of garlic. And I just have peeled this and I take off the little end piece. And then I cut it in half and lay it flat. And then I'm just going to make little slivers and just lay them out on your board. Lets do a really fine mince lets go nice and slow. It's going to give this salad a nice little fresh bite to it. There we go. And you can add that to your dressing. And then I've got some beautiful fresh basil. And this is going to give it a nice fresh pop. So I'm going to show you a quick way to do this. You stack them up. Give them a quick roll like a little cigar, just like that. And now give it a quick chop. And there you go. And we will just add that beautiful fresh basil to the dressing. Alright so we've got our nice dressing here and I'm just going to pour that right over the potato. That garlic smells so good. Okay for this Italian potato salad I've got about two links of hot Italian spicy sausage. So they are just coming off the stove. Alright and I'm going to add them right to our potatoes. Alright. This is a very unique style salad. So if you have to bring one to a party or a picnic this would be a great thing to bring. And now one vegetable that Italians love is called fennel. Finochio if you are in Italy. And it kind of looks a little bit like celery but it actually is also called anise. It's got that licorice flavor to it so it's going to add a nice little tang to this salad. So I'm just going to cut off the bottom. And then you can just slice it. And there ok. So there we have some fennel. So now I'm going to show you a unique way to plate this salad. It's a little different from your standard potato salad. So I've got some mixed greens. These are baby greens. You could certainly use arugula or a combination of any of those. So I'm just going to take a small handful. Put it right on an individual plate. There we go. And then I'm going to take a spoonful of our potato salad. And put it right in the middle. And get right down in the bowl so you can get some of that nice dressing. And this is your Italian potato salad.
