Are you a superfan of potatoes like me?
I absolutely love potato salad and inventing craveable mash-ups. This recipe is dedicated to my mom and BFF, Pam!!! She loves Caesar salad, and every time she orders it at a steakhouse, she says she feels like Elizabeth Taylor. (People say they look alike; what do you think?)
Whenever my family and I went to a steakhouse, Caeser salad and potatoes were always the happy sidekicks to the steak. So mom, for you and all my Chop Happy friends, I combined the two in a totally creamy, cheesy, and starchily satisfying potato salad.
This recipe is great because you learn lots of techniques to make you a home cook superstar.
- Boil your potatoes in chicken stock (or veggie stock, if vegetarian) instead of water. It will infuse more flavor into your potatoes, guaranteeing a yummy potato inside and out. Use a microplane to grate garlic. This is easier than chopping and it saves time, but most importantly this allows the garlic to mix and distribute evenly throughout the dressing.
Hold the lemon with the cut side up to avoid lemon seeds in the food.
The Caesar dressing in this recipe is excellent not just for the potato salad but also as a basic dressing you can use on salads or as a dip. (See recipe below.)
As always, this recipe is part of my mission to provide you with 2 goals:1) To make amazingly simple homemade comfort food.2) To learn fun tips to make cooking fun.
