Cold Comfort

Red Potatoes 

There is nothing like a cold lunch when it gets hot at the beach. And one of the easiest and most elegant is a variation of the lunches that my parents used to make when we lived in Holland. I think of dishes like this as cold comfort food.

6 red potatoes, boiled, quartered and cooled to room temperature

1/2 smallish red onion, chopped

1-2 hard boiled egg(s), quartered

2 strips of crumbled bacon or chopped deli ham

fresh parsely, minced

Vinegrette: olive oil, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic clove (minced) salt and pepper.

Assemble it all and toss with the vinegrette. You may want to keep the eggs on the side and just sprinkle with salt and pepper. We served this as lunch with my roasted asparagus (lemon juice, olive oil parmesan, salt and pepper), pickle and a cold beer.

  1. OTC’s site will give you a good indication of fashion’s international style now in vogue. I don’t endorse all the looks, but it’s always good to be kept up to date, and as The Sartorialist says, you can borrow parts of a look to incorporate into your style.

    As Oscar Wilde wrote: “Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” Style never goes out of fashion. Develop your own and you will always be well-dressed.
