Spring Potato Salad

“Simplicity” is the best advice I can give to those wanting to know how to create delicious food.” Jodie Mo


Coarse salt (such as kosher or sea salt)

4 red potatoes

2 medium carrots, peeled and thickly sliced

½ cup frozen (or fresh) baby lima beans

½ cup of frozen (or fresh) green peas

1 (15oz) can of artichoke hearts in water (or frozen if you can find them)

Freshly ground pepper

2 egg yolks, at room temp

¼ cup olive oil

½ cup vegetable oil

4 garlic cloves put through a press

1 lemon juiced

½ t. dried tarragon


Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add a liberal amount, 2-3 tablespoons, of salt (no, this 
will not all go into your food, but it will season everything you cook in it. Trust me.)

Add the potatoes to the water and boil until just tender, but not mushy.

Remove them to a colander, rinse with cool water and then dice into cubes and add to a large 

Meanwhile add in the carrots, boil for 2-3 minutes until tender but still crisp.

Remove them to the colander, rinse with cold water, and add them to the potatoes.

Continue with the lima beans, which should take about 5 minutes, and then to the peas, which 
should only need a minute or two.

Rinse both under cold water and add to the potatoes and carrots.

Throw the artichokes in the water to heat up and remove any tinny taste and then add to the rest of the vegetables.

While your vegetables are blanching, beat the egg yolks until foamy, then while whisking, very 
slowly drizzle in the oil (mix the two oils together in a measuring cup first).

The mixture should be very thick (like mayo!).

Once all of the oil is absorbed stir in the garlic, tarragon, half the lemon juice and season with 

Add the mayo to the vegetables and gently stir to combine.

Season with pepper and additional salt and lemon juice if needed.

Refrigerate for a couple of hours or up to 3 days.
