Summer is upon us and my garden is busting with vegetables, especially potatoes in red and gold. I recently had some foodie inspiration from the popular food show ABC’s The Chew where Carla prepared a warm potato salad using fresh herbs, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. You can watch the snippet below.
I make warm potato salad on my barbecue all summer long, but this recipe was a little different with the tangy dressing. I knew I had to make something similar. I added browned sausage and added a bit of sweetness by caramelizing some onions. Soft tang comes from the Cotija cheese (a Mexican farmers cheese) and it’s all melded with a bunch of fresh herbs snipped from the garden and a quick vinaigrette of balsamic & olive oil. All that’s missing here are forks and hungry mouths. According to my 15 year old, this “needs” to be my new go-to potato salad. Guess what? It’s even better the next day.
I’m always looking for new ways to spice up my Summer dishes, and ABC’s The Chew serves up everything from grilling and outdoor entertaining to road trips and picnics.
