Not Your Mamma's Potato Salad Recipe
There was a time many years ago when I lived and worked on an Organic Farm, we lived way out in the country and often had to reinvent recipes, as stopping by the store to pick something up wasn't an option. "Not Your Mamma's Potato Salad" is based on an on the fly recipe we made one day with fresh veggies from the farm, some toasted sesame oil, a little balsamic vinegar, some herbs, and a little salt, and Ta-Da the best potato salad I ever had was born! Being from the Mid-west I was used to the creamy versions, but feel in love with this one.
This is a quick extremely healthy version of potato salad. Red Potatoes are my favorite and I think give this salad the best flavor, but you can use whatever you have on hand. It's easy to increase the size of this salad but just doubling amounts.
Let's get to it!
