Mojo Potato

Take boring potato salad and make it extraordinary for your next cookout with this recipe for mayo mojo potato salad. This really easy potato salad recipe is just as delicious when served warm as when it is chilled.

Course. Lunch. Dinner. Salad. Side Dish. Vegetable.

Cuisine. American.

Makes. 1 pound

Preparation time. 30 minutes

Cooking time. About 15 minutes

Ingredients

2 generous pinches salt

2 tablespoons Mayo Mojo

6 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 tablespoon distilled vinegar

1 pound waxy potatoes like Yukon Golds

Optional mix-ins. Bacon, celery, onion, green onion, chives, hard boiled eggs, and sun-dried tomatoes. I especially like it with sun-drieds.

Method

1) Prep. Make the Mayo Mojo about two hours in advance of serving so the spices can soften and the oils can extract the flavor. This is important.

2) Cut the potatoes into bite size chunks.

3) Cook. Bring 1 quart of water to a boil. Add 2 generous pinches of salt and then the potatoes. Boil about 15 minutes or until a fork pierces the potato easily. Drain and cool the potatoes for at least 20 minutes. Mix them in with the mayo mix.

4) Serve. Serve the potato salad immediately or refrigerate for up to 3 days.
