Awesome Chipotle Potato Salad

Yep. I am incredibly addicted to anything chipotle – which is why I had no choice but to create a potato salad version. I’m also kind of addicted to BBQ season, picnic season – any reason to eat food in the great outdoors. I don’t typically eat a lot of potato. But potato salad? Hello! So this awesome chipotle potato salad is my jam.

I LOVE chipotles’ smokey, tasty perfection. And spiciness, too. It became my most addictive flavouring back when I didn’t eat meat. I suppose I was using it to replace that smokey bbq experience – without falling back into bacon heaven.

This Chipotle Potato Salad is super tasty – and it’s secret? The toasted sesame oil. It allows all the flavours to rise to something even better. I ALSO make this salad using sweet potato. Which I love just as much. And when I do I GRILL the sweet potatoes gently on a rack on the bbq.

Make it with Homemade Lacto-Fermented Mayonnaise or a decent store-bought version (NEVER Miracle Whip — ew).

The recipe below will change your life. I promise 🙂 It yields a lot of potato salad — perfect for a potluck or social BBQ, where you get to wow everybody.

  • 1. Chop potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Add to pot with fresh water and large pinch or two of sea salt. Bring to boil then simmer until just cooked. Drain and allow to cool a bit.
  • 2. Meanwhile, combine all the dressing ingredients – mayo to garlic. Combine with still-warm potatoes. If you are serving warm add remaining ingredients and eat right away. If not let them cool with the dressing before adding everything else.
  • 3. *With grill on medium-low place whole peppers for 5 minutes or more for each side (usually three) until charred and skin peels away. Use this instead of pre-roasted peppers.
