August 18th is National Potato Day. We could celebrate happily with a fully loaded baked potato or some fabulous fries. But when we received this recipe from Gourmet Attitude, we knew we had to make it. (There’s no National Potato Salad Day…yet.)
Gourmet Attitude specializes in everything truffle: fresh truffles, frozen truffles, truffle butter, truffle cream, truffle honey, truffle oil…we’re too hungry to go on.
The recipe was created by Denise Woodward of Chez Us, a recipe blog with many fans.

3. PLACE the cooled potatoes, celery and shallots in a large mixing bowl. Pour on the dressing and lightly fold to mix.
4. SERVE in a bowl or on a serving platter. Garnish with some truffle slices*.
If you buy it for this recipe, there are other dishes that would enjoy a brushing, spray or toss of truffle oil.
*Substitute ground porcini mushrooms for the minced truffles, and sliced porcini mushrooms for the truffle slices. The different types of mushrooms.
