Potato Salad Recipe

Yields:3-4 people

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook time: 15-20 min

Total time: 35 min


Ingredients:

  • 6 to 9 medium potatoes peeled and diced to small cubes (small, waxy, and thin-skinned potatoes are best for potato salad.

  • 4 carrots dice into cubes

  • 1/2 red onion chopped

  • 4 dill pickles chopped (I use Bubbies Pure Kosher Dill Pickle )

  • 2 cups thawed green peas

  • Handful of fresh dill chopped

Cashew mustard dressing for potato salad

  • 1 cup cashew nut soaked overnight or 30 min in hot water

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 lemon juiced

  • 1-2 garlic cloves minced or more if you like garlicky

  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 1 tsp salt

  • Black pepper to taste.

Direction:

  1. The Best Potatoes To Use. Small, waxy, and thin-skinned potatoes are best for potato salad. Small yellow, white or red potatoes are great. They are quick-cooking.

  2. Simmer, don’t boil. When it comes to cooking potatoes for potato salad, there’s no need to boil. When you do they violently bash against each other. Instead, bring the water with potatoes to a boil then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. The potatoes cook just as quickly. Another option is to steam them for 15 min.

  3. In a large pot, cover potatoes with cold, salted water (1 teaspoon salt). Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes. Drain, and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking.

  4. To make the dressing simply add all of the 6 ingredients to a blender and process until smooth. Once everything is mixed together add the dressing to the bowl with the vegetables and give it all a good stir making sure that everything is evenly coated with the dressing. Now your delicious potato salad is ready to be served! Serve on a bed of lettuce or arugula.

Tips: This dish also lasts up to 4 days in the refrigerator so feel free to double or triple this recipe if you’re feeding a crowd this weekend!
