it's no secret that i love spicy food -
anything with a good kick!
with that being said,
this recipe ain't yo' mama's potato salad...
southwestern potato salad
2 lbs small new potatoes
1 C prepared mayonnaise
2 Tbs dijon mustard
2 Tbs fresh lime juice
2 Tbs ancho chile powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 lg tomato, seeded & chopped
1/4 C chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno, finely diced
3 green onions, white & green parts, thinly sliced
1 medium red onion, halved & thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
freshly ground black pepper
1. put the potatoes in a large pot & add enough cold water to cover. add 1 Tbs salt & bring to a boil over high heat. cook until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, 12-15 minutes.
2. drain well, let cool slightly, & slice 1/4" thick. put in a large bowl & cover with aluminum foil to keep warm while you prepare the dressing.
3. stir together the mayo, mustard, lime juice, ancho powder, cayenne, tomato, cilantro, jalapeno, green onions, red onion, & garlic in a medium bowl. pour the mixture over the potatoes & mix gently until combined. season with salt & pepper to taste. serve cold or at room temperature.
yum, yum, yummy!
this is such a great side dish for summer.
i recommend making it the day before you plan on serving it,
just so the flavors really have time to come together.
until next time,
