Ultimate Recipe Swap: Root Veggies


This is my kind of recipe swap! We are potato-aholics in my house! We literally eat potatoes with almost every meal. Usually I just mash them with a little sour cream a lot of butter, and a pinch of salt and pepper. I am, however, a huge fan of potato salad, IF the potatoes are properly cooked. I've found that the best way to achieve the perfect doneness is to steam them. Here is my favorite potato salad recipe... 

Baby Red Potato Salad 

4 cups baby red potatoes, cut in small pieces
½ cup green bell pepper, finely diced
¼ cup red onion, finely diced
3 scallions, diced
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp reduced fat mayonnaise
salt and fresh pepper

Boil potatoes in salted water until soft, approx 10 minutes. Drain and let cool.

While the potatoes are boiling, combine red onion, green pepper, mustard, olive oil, vinegar and mayonnaise and season with salt and pepper. Mix well and let the flavors marinade while the potatoes cook. Once the potatoes are done and cool, mix into the bowl and add scallions and additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve room temperature or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tip: i steam the potatoes instead of boiling them.

My other favorite way to use root veggies is in a yummy pot roast! Check out my recipe for Balsamic Roast with Potatoes and Carrots. It's super easy and oh so tasty!
