As summer comes to a close, I still find myself craving summer staples. The other day for lunch Alex and I whipped together this wonderful take on classic potato salad and he gobbled up the whole thing (sparing a few tasty morsels for me)! We used red potatoes, caramelized onions, dijon mustard and fresh chives.
Red Potato Salad
Yield: 4 Servings
4 red potatoes, chopped into 1" pieces
1/2 tbsp butter
1 small yellow onion, diced
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp chives, chopped
ground black pepper
Place a small pot 3/4 filled with water over high heat. When the water is boiling, lower the heat to medium and add the chopped potatoes as well as some salt. Allow them to simmer in the water for 10 minutes or until they're fork tender.
Meanwhile, in a small pan over medium heat add the butter. Once it's melted, add the diced onion and allow it to cook for about five minutes, stirring frequently until it's slightly caramelized.
When the potatoes are cooked, drain them and rinse them with cold water. In a large bowl, add the cooked potatoes, the caramelized onions, the mayonnaise, the dijon mustard, the chives, as well as a bit of salt and pepper. Finally, stir it all together with a big spoon until it's well mixed. Enjoy!
