I’m not really a salad person. So there are very few salad that appeal to me. I’m don’t like salads that are all leaves, but prefer something with more textures and tastes. Just because its a salad doesn’t mean it has to be reall dull boring now, does it?
I hate mayo and the creamy potato salads just make me sick. Here’s a very simple Potato Salad recipe that is simply delicious. You can change the flavours by adding anything you like to it. Its just so versatile. That’s exactly why I love it!
Spicy Potato Salad
3-4 medium sized potatoes, boiled (I like using both, the white and red potatoes. Its combination is taste is just wonderful.)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
½ cup chopped coriander leaves
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp chaat masala
Peel and slice potatoes into a salad bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
Spicy Notes: Chaat masala is a blend of multiple seasonings, including cumin, coriander, black salt, ginger, and the tart and tangy dried mango powder (amchoor). It is easily available at any Indian grocery store.
