Every Monday and Wednesday, we'll announce a new Wildcard winner: a recipe that may not have been entered in (or won) a contest, but a recipe that we've tested and loved.

Today: Potato salad gets a facelift.

Tarragon Potato Salad from Food52

WHO: La domestique is a cook, writer, and photographer in Cavan, Ireland.

WHAT: Potato salad, all dressed up.

HOW: Boil potatoes, then toss them with herbs, lemon juice, olive oil, and slivers of cured salmon.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Unlike its mayo-lacquered counterparts or its tart, vinegary cousins, this potato salad has both personality and elegance. The herbs give it lift; the salmon, a salty kick. Serve it at your next brunch, and watch it disappear.
