I was looking for a side dish to go with my Chili Glazed Chicken Wings and I wanted a potato salad but not the regular ordinary potato salad as I have had that so many times and it is rather boring. So I looked around and found Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill’s Southwestern Potato Salad. Bobby Flay is the owner of Mesa Grill New York which is a Southwestern restaurant here in New York that is on my “to try” list. This potato salad will go perfect with my wings as it has all the great flavors of the American Southwest….Cilantro, Lime and chili powder.
3 pounds new potatoes
1 cup prepared mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons ancho chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
Freshly ground black pepper
3 scallions, white and green parts, chopped
1 large ripe beefsteak tomato, seeded and chopped
1 jalapeno, finely diced
1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/3 cup freshly chopped cilantro leaves
Stir together the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour the mixture over the warm potatoes and mix gently until combined, mashing the potatoes slightly. Season again with salt and pepper, to taste, before serving.
