What’s a July 4th celebration without potato salad? While we previously published a July 4th potato salad recipe, this one is distinctly different. It uses apples for the white stars.
The apple stars are made with Envy apples (photo #3), a newer breed that was created to avoid beginning to brown (oxidize) for up to 10 hours, making it a variety to seek out for recipes.
As a regular eating apple (the trade term is “hand fruit,” the flavor is sweet and the texture is crisp, with a satisfying crunch.
Along with an elegant vinaigrette, the recipe is not your mother’s white-potatoes-with-mayo dish.
Check out the potato salad (photo #1), and also our first Red, White & Blue Potato Salad recipe made with bacon and a protein-packed walnut crunch (photo #2).

For The Vinaigrette
1. BOIL the red and purple potatoes separately in salted water (should taste like the ocean) until tender. Drain.
2. WHISK together all ingredients for the vinaigrette and then toss with the warm potatoes.
3. FOLD in the diced apples and parsley and serve.
