Not Your Church Potluck Potato Salad

Potatoes for Sale at my Local Farmers Market

Potatoes are plentiful in my local farmer's market this time of summer.  I love to boil up the tiny new ones and use them in various potato salads.  Serve them with some simple sliced summer tomatoes, corn on the cob and something from the BBQ and you have the quintessential summer menu.

Bonus recipe

Sriracha Whipped potatoes

  • Whip 12 of your favorite peeled white potatoes into soft peaks.
  • Add 1/.2 cup of Mayonnaise
  • 3 TBS of organic Sriracha sauce

Sriracha sauce, named for the region it comes from can be found in organic versions.  It is made with Chilies, vinegar, salt and garlic.  The chilies contain Capsaicin which can boost metabolism.  We think it helps boost your system overall increasing serotonin.  Garlic lowers cholesterol and blood pressure.
