Many believe it to be an American classic, but potato salad is actually a popular dish around the world. This version is a fusion of influences from the traditional potato salads of Brazil and several countries throughout Europe. Cornichons, sweet, French gherkin pickles, are often used in the Dutch and Czech preparations, along with the typical mayonnaise and onion. We also included a little Greek yogurt for added creaminess, and some lemon juice to make the salad a zippy side for a seared trout fillet.
