This salad will always remind me of howling coyotes on a full moon at Potrero Nuevo Farm. I prepared part of this dish the night before our pig roast and the farm kitchen, which is open on one side to the fields, became a sounding box for coyote pups partying it up under the full harvest moon.

If you’ve never had a smoked potato, then you’ll be nicely surprised at how they elevate this simple picnic side dish to a whole new level.
I smoked these in the wood under our pig the day of our event but I’ve also made them in smokers before. You can do this in an oven too with a packet of mequite chips too or a regular charcoal BBQ.

Tarragon flowers, tarragon, parsley and hard cooked egg garnish the top along with red spring onions and a mustard vinaigrette.
And look at these gorgeous red spring onions from Potrero Nuevo Farm! Wow!
Red spring oinons!
