Creole Potato Salad
Well here is one that will set your toes on fire.
It is from the cooking class we had on cajun cooking.
You can reduce the amount of hot spice but it is the best
I have had
in a long, long time, watch out this is very spicy but oh so good
3 lbs red skinned pot (you don't have to peel them)
6 large eggs, hard boiled, peeled and chopped
1 bunch scallions chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
juice of 2 lemons
1/2 cup dill pickles...finely chopped
1 cup good mayo no miracle whip
2 T cream style mustard (hot dog style..plain old yeller)
1 tablespoon horseradish
1 tablespoon Course salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
Cook potatoes whole starting in COLD water and cover. (I
didn't realize there was a
difference. Since potatoes are stored cold and in the dark
really taste better and cook different if started out cold
and covered. I always did
this ...but we did it both ways...the texture in the potatoes
was really different.)
Check the Potatoes. (run under cold water to stop the cooking
When cool enough to handle, cut into medium sized pieces.
Add rest of ingredients
and mix well. Refrigerate.
