Hubby did the cooking this past weekend and mixed up a couple of tasty salads. He opened up the big binder of recipes and picked a couple that we thought we had made before, but now not so sure. He made a potato salad from Hellmans and Bobby Flay. Now, I am not a Mayo fan so I tend to shy away from potato salads made with Mayonnaise, but this one was pretty good. It reminded us of my husbands favorite potato salad – Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill Potato Salad. The only thing missing was the chipotles which add some wicked heat. This made a nice size salad which was quickly gobbled up by the kids and my husband. Give it a try!
Bobby Flay’s Green Onion Potato Salad
2 lbs. red potatoes
1 Tbsp. PLUS 2 tsp. Kosher salt, divided
1-1/4 cups Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
1 to 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
6 green onions (green and pale green part), thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or flat leaf parsley
Cover potatoes with water in 4-quart saucepot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon salt. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain and cool slightly. Slice into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
Combine Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise, vinegar, jalapeno peppers, salt and black pepper in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients and toss gently. Season, if desired, with additional salt and pepper. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
