I made these dishes with my wonderful CSA bounty. They are all super simple, with only a few pantry ingredients and the CSA vegetables we have. These all were so good I wanted to share them.
Gribiche sauce is French for; chunky-tangy-upscale mayonnaise. Not really, but that is pretty much what it is.
It’s so simple to make with only a few ingredients that you probably have on hand; hard boiled eggs, mustard, vinegar, olive oil, capers, mild onions and pickles. Does that sound like potato salad makings? It pretty much is. But boy, does it elevate almost any dish.
Sadly the sauce isn’t very photogenic. I almost didn’t post these recipes because I am not too happy with the photos. But these are all too delicious not to post, so here we go.
2 hard boiled eggs smash the yolks in a bowl chop the whites
2 tablespoons vinegar-I used white wine vinegar
One small onion or shallot chopped up fine
2 tablespoons mustard-I used a stoneground mustard
6 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons capers, rinsed
2 tablespoons pickles chopped-I used dill you could use cornichons and be fancy.
Salt and pepper
Smash the yolks in a bowl and whisk in everything else-taste and adjust vinegar and salt and pepper-that is it.
Dish this on everything. I boiled some potatoes and some green beans (you could use any vegetables) then I mixed it up like potato salad and served it with some Mexican Street Corn. the Street Corn recipe is here.
The next night I spooned the gribiche on some grilled zucchini and onions, it makes a really elegant dish.
Next up is Fresh Corn Polenta. This screams Summer and so simple and delicious you will wonder why you haven’t made it before. Again, not very photogenic, but you should make it. The recipe is here.
I hope you try these dishes. They are so easy and tasty.
Have a great week.
