Creole Potato Salad 

Potato salad is one of those crowd-pleasing side dishes southerners just can’t seem to get enough of. From potluck socials to parties under the tailgating tent, there are a variety of flavors to try & love. Creole Potato Salad is a classic that pairs well with traditional barbecue or a smoky bowl of Chicken & Sausage GumboThe later, an iconic Louisiana combination, is popular during the holidays as both recipes can be made ahead & served to a houseful of family relatively easily. Just as effortlessly, the potato salad accompanies sandwiches, grilled steak & hearty salads with a distinctive taste worth savoring over & over again. Keep this recipe close as it will prove to be a valuable meal solution & party menu favorite over & over again.

makes 8 servings

The Basic Fundamentals

Cooking the potatoes whole provides a smoother texture to the salad.

2 1/2 lbs russet potatoes
1 1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp Creole mustard
1/3 cup chopped sweet onion
1 celery rib, chopped
1 1/2 tsp Creole seasoning
Garnishes: Freshly ground pepper, fresh parsley & scallions

Bring the potatoes & water to cover to a boil over Medium-High heat. Reduce the heat to Medium & simmer 30 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain & let stand 15 minutes. Stir together the mayonnaise & remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Peel the warm potatoes from their jackets using a paring knife. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Fold them into the dressing mixture. Do not over blend. Garnish, if desired.

The Extra Point

Accompany this crowd pleasing potato salad with Grilled Rosemary-Dijon Chicken Skewers or Classic Grilled Flank Steak for a delicious weeknight supper meal solution.

How To Trim Scallions

Although scallions are available in your local market year round, they are typically planted when the ground is cool. As the soil begins to warm, the scallions begin to take shape in the garden & are ready for a spring harvest. If a milder flavor is desired in recipe applications, choose younger, smaller bulb groupings. They make ideal garnishes when added to side dishes, appetizers & so much more.

Expect the white portion to have a sharper flavor so many times recipes may call to omit it for a more balanced flavor as is the case of Scallion Vinaigrette. Trim scallions before using them in recipe applications by cutting the tips & the ends away, then thinly cut them. When I worked in the restaurants, several chefs used razor blades to slice them with precision into a collection of shaved green onions. Although certainly not necessary in this case, I find that a freshly sharpened paring knife yields a cleaner, neater result as opposed to a chef knife. Look to The Basics: Scallions for additional pointers.
