Irish Potato Salad

“Housekeeping In Old Virginia”, By Marion Cabell Tyree, 1877




Cut ten or twelve cold boiled potatoes into small pieces. Put into a

salad bowl with--



4 tablespoonfuls vinegar.

4 tablespoonfuls best salad oil.

1 teaspoonful minced parsley.

Pepper and salt to taste.



Stir all well that they may be thoroughly mixed; it should be made

several hours before putting on the table.



Throw in bits of pickle, cold fowl, a garnish of grated cracker, and

hard-boiled eggs.

Albert. Thanks for sharing another great classic summertime recipe. I like to make a more traditional German potato salad with a warm dressing made with mayo and celery and onion. I never heard of crackers and fowl added to potato salad. I have a question: I used to hear my grandfather say that he was an expert at making cracker soup. What exactly is cracker soup? David.
