POTATO SALAD


En Español
Perfect salad for a BBQ, dinner and holidays. Like the pink potato salad, this Ensalada Rusa is another family favorite in my home.


Delicious Potato Salad


Perfect salad to accompany a BBQ, family dinner and almost always present in the traditional Dominican Christmas dinner.

Ingredients: 
6 large potatoes
4 carrots
1 can corn
1 can petit pois (green peas)
1 onion 2 cubanela peppers or 1 bell pepper (optional)
4 boiled eggs
3/4 - 1 cup mayonnaise or to taste
salt and pepper to taste
2 - 3 teaspoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon mustard (optional)

Instructions: 
1. Boil the potatoes along with carrots, until tender. Boil eggs separately. When ready and cooled, chop into ½ inch cubes. Chop onion and peppers into small cubes and add to potato, eggs and carrots mixture, mix.
2. Add corn and peas. Season with vinegar, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Mix well and serve.
3. It is recommended to prepare this salad and refrigerate for at least two to three hours before serving for best flavor.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings 


Notes:
a) Extra precaution is necessary when serving dishes that contain eggs and mayonnaise. To prevent spoilage, refrigerate any leftover salad and keep it cold at all the times.

b) For a better taste use fresh and crisp green or red peppers. These are good source of vitamin C.

c) For an extra yummy taste you can add nuts, raisins, grapes and an apple. Last year for Christmas, Crystal  added chopped grapes and an apple with 1 tablespoon of  lemon juice. It was........YUMMY!

  8. Mari this looks so good. It's very similar to a recipe I've made in the past and I agree with you that it's just delicious. Adding grapes to it is wonderful.

    And your niece is precious!!

    I would like to add here that I recently purchased Mari's e-book, How to Cook Dominican Style and I love, love, love it!! Even if you're not familiar with Dominican food, you should definitely try this. My husband is Dominicano and was thrilled when I got the e-book. I've already made the cod fish salad (ensalada de bacalao), and the chow fan. Both came out just like his mother makes them. Thank you so much Mari. I can't imagine how much work went in to writing that e-book!
