ingredients

  • 1 piece waxed bologna (about 300 g)
  • 1 lb (454 g) tiny new potatoes
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ lemon, for zest and juice
  • 1 ½ tbsp. (22.5 ml) grainy mustard
  • 10 French gherkins, cut into rounds
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) chopped dill
  • 4 slices country-style bread
  • 1 clove garlic, cut in 2
  • Dijonnaise dressing, to taste
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Boil the potatoes in salted water until a fork inserted meets only slight resistance. Remove from heat, drain, cover and let rest 10 minutes.
  3. Place the onion, lemon zest and lemon juice in a salad bowl, add the mustard, pickles and a ¼ cup of olive oil. Whisk to make a vinaigrette.
  4. Cut the still-warm potatoes in 2 or 4 and place in the salad bowl, toss well, then add the dill, salt and pepper and toss again.
  5. Drizzle the bread slices with some olive oil, place on a baking sheet and bake until just coloured.
  6. Rub the bread slices with the garlic halves, cut them into 3 and set aside.
  7. Bring a small pot of water to a boil.
  8. Cut the bologna into 3 thick slices and then into chunky cubes.
  9. Plunge bologna cubes into the boiling water just long enough to warm them up.
  10. Divide the warm potato salad into 4 plates and top with the bologna cubes and garlic bread and serve accompanied by ramekins of Dijonnaise dressing.
