Mexican Potato and Vegetable Salad...

I first heard about this recipe a couple of years ago, from my friend Saul....I hadn't realized that there was another 'potato salad'....but there is a Mexican one that has potatoes, and no egg and mayonaise.....It is so good and filling! And what is better, it will hold up very well at an outdoor picnic! I think you could add whatever vegetables you like or have fresh...I think fresh roasted corn, cut off the cob would be good and radishes.....

Mexican-Style Potato and Vegetable Salad

11/2 pounds of boiling potatoes, such as yukon gold or red potatoes
boiled until soft and cut in cubes
1 cup of cut fresh green beans, blanched for 2 minutes
2 cups of assorted summer squash (zucchini or crookneck) blanched for 1 minute
1/2 cup sweet onion cut in pieces
1 cup of cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup of red pepper
mix all together and then toss with vinaigrette and garnish...set in fridge until time to serve

chiles (optional)
1/2 cup of cilantro
1/4 cup of sliced onions

2 cloves of garlic crushed and chopped fine
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon of lime juice

1 tsp of cumin
pinch of salt
1/4 cup of Olive oil

  1. It looks so colourful and delicious - I am going to make this myself. Hope I make as good a job as you have

  2. Looks yummy. I prefer a dressing without mayo, so I would like to try this one.
