The potato salad is a triumph

We were invited to a barbeque a few weeks ago at the house of a professional chef.  Simple barbeque – two salads and sausages – and indecent amounts of fine red wine.

The most memorable thing though was a potato salad which contained caramelized onion.

The chef would not give me the recipe.  She never does.

So I found a recipe on the web.  Here it is.

Simple – but modestly time consuming as you need to fry the onion very gently for 45 minutes.  Also it is kind of important to have everything warm – so do the sauce immediately, then put on the onion and the potatoes only towards the end.

Highly recommended.  

Better to do simple things really well.
