Cantina Potato Salad

This spicy, addictive potato salad would be perfect alongside a BBQ pulled pork sandwich for Memorial Day weekend. Adapted from a recipe given to me by a friend, this version is dubbed Cantina Potato Salad due to the Mexican flavors and because I was listening to Lila Downs while cooking. Combine Lila, potatoes, and BBQ, and you've got yourself a party.

Cantina Potato Salad
1/2 cup Vegenaise
1 1/2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
juice from 1/2 lime
2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno, minced
2 scallions, diced
1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
2 pounds red potatoes, chopped, cooked, and drained

With a spatula, combine vegenaise and Dijon with other ingredients except potatoes. Mix the dressing well. Pour over cooked potatoes. Check for seasoning.

    Jessy, this is my favorite way to have potato salad. I'll admit that it's not even 10am and I've already had a serving today. Irresistable!

    Bianca, I associate potato salad with a great summer meal too. Mmm...BBQ beans on the side would be a good addition.
