"This is the basic recipe my gram used to use to make her potato salad. It sounds odd, but the anise is really good in this dish."

The licorice flavor of the anise is different and good in this recipe. I leave skins on potatoes when making potato salad. I will be making this again, and maybe increasing the anise seed to 1 tsp.!

I love anything anise! Thanks for the recipe Domenica. I buy so many cookbooks and have so many appliances but I always go right back to my gramma's recipes.....a pinch, a handful, a bunch of....no measuring cups or spoons! Maybe one day soon I'll chuck it all and enjoy the simple pleasures & treasures of a lost art....gramma's cooking!!
