Mesa Grill's Southwestern Potato Salad
Hello! How's everyone's summer going? Obviously mine has been busy. I can't believe how long it has taken me to get back here! I apologize for neglecting my foodie friends, but it's really not my fault at all.
You see, it's mostly his fault:
Mark and I have been spending a lot of time at sporting events lately. We went and got season tickets to both the Cleveland Indians and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs in the playoffs was SO exciting and it consumed our lives for a while there. Hey, we get excited in Cleveland when one of our sports franchises decides to be good! Unfortunately things didn't work out in our favor (in true Cleveland fashion), but it was a great (and sometimes hungover) ride.
It's also his fault:
We love our Cleveland Indians and our Progressive Stadium. It's just about the best place to be on a sunny summer day. Warm sun and cold beer... what else is there?
So you see, my absence from FOODIE was not my fault at all. It was everyone else's fault, including Mark's, for getting me so damn interested in sports these last couple years. Love ya! :-)
So as you can imagine, I haven't been doing my usual amount of cooking and when I have cooked, it's been somewhat boring stuff that I didn't bother taking pictures of. However some of it has been very good and we've documented that stuff and plan to share it with you soon. One of those things was this recipe for Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill Southwestern Potato Salad. If you're sick of that boring 'ol potato salad you've had 350,000 times in your life, MAKE THIS ONE. It's got a tang from the lime juice, a kick from the jalapeno and cayenne pepper, and a fantastic freshness from the king of herbs, cilantro. It's absolutely delicious and positively addicting - I could not stop eating it! So, if you have a picnic coming up and you're asked to bring something, consider bringing this potato salad. It'll be the life of the party, I guarantee it.
I didn't take too many pictures while making this, but here is the mise en place:
Check out the recipe below and make this right away! I hope you love it, and I will try and get my butt back here very soon to share with you more delicious meals. Oh, and in the future, look forward to seeing a video of me trying to cook a Rachael Ray 30 minute meal in 30 minutes! Mark has bet me that it can't be done, so I told him I would do it and he could video tape me. THIS should be funny. See you soon!
