Potato Ho-Down: Southwestern Potato Salad

Mesa Grill’s Southwestern Potato Salad

Southwestern Potato Salad

Potato Salad with a kick!

Mesa Grill’s Southwestern Potato Salad
Bobby Flay

1  1/2 cups mayonnaise   ( I used olive oil mayonnaise.)
1/4  cup Dijon mustard
2  tablespoons fresh lime juice
2  tablespoons chipotle puree   (Did not know what this was … so I used Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (smoked red jalapeno peppers in spices, vinegar, tomato sauce and ancho chiles).  Seeded 2 of the  peppers and mashed those  with about a tablespoon of the adobo sauce the peppers are  packed in  …  and you have my interpretation of chipotle puree!  This may not be what  Bobby had in mind but it gave the potato salad a wonderful flavor.   Although I like spicy food, I am going to cut back to one pepper next time as I feel that it would appeal to more people.)
1  large ripe tomato, seeded and diced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
3 scallions, chopped, white and green parts
1  medium red onion, thinly sliced   (I think thinly sliced is key to the taste and appearance of onion in this salad.)
1/2  teaspoon cayenne (I did not use.)
4  cloves of garlic,  finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
16 new potatoes, about 3 to 4 pounds, cooked, drained and sliced 1/2 inch thick

Combine all the ingredients, except the potatoes, in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste.  Place warm potatoes in a large bowl and pour the mixture over potatoes and gently, mix well.  Season again with salt and pepper to taste.

Mr. Flay is usually in a THROW DOWN. Now he can say he has been in a  HO DOWN … POTATO THAT IS !!!
