Thin with 1 to 2 T water or until mixture has the consistency of salad dressing. Makes about 1 cup. Note- Fingerling potatoes are a yellow-fleshed variety and are about 1 inch in diameter and 2 to 4 inches long, Their waxy texture makes them a good choice for salads. If unavailable, any large yellow-fleshed or smooth white-fleshed potatoes can be substituted. If using large potatoes, cut each into 2-inch pieces.
