Potato Salad With a Kick

Now that we're well into summer, you may be tired of your old, well-loved potato salad recipe. If so, give this new twist a try.

This recipe came into being out of a need to NOT go food shopping, but to create a potato salad from what I had available at the time......


10 red skinned potatoes
One quarter of a huge red onion, chopped small
1 or 2 jalapeƱos, diced fine
Half of a large bunch of cilantro, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste


I started by boiling the red potatoes for 20 minutes. I boiled them whole.
While they were boiling, I chopped up the onion, jalapeƱo, and lots of good aromatic cilantro.
After the potatoes cooked, I let them cool completely. If you skip this step they will likely fall apart when you try to cut them!
After the potatoes cooled I cut them into about 8 chunks a piece. ( You could also slice them if you prefer your potato salad sliced.)
In a big bowl, mix all the ingredients together, add mayonnaise to your desired liking, salt and pepper well, and enjoy!
