Potato Salad w/Roasted Cumin and Horseradish Vinaigrette

Baby new red potatoes tossed in this vinaigrette offers a light variation to your everyday potato salad.


Every time I visit my parents, my mom insists that I take home some groceries when I leave. It's always something new -a couple of bananas, a ripe mango, a large filet of salmon. "I bought a large piece from Costco and divided it up for you kids." And by "kids," she means her three adult children. It's quite cute actually.

This time she packed up some new red potatoes, a couple of peaches, and a bunch of cilantro. I had forgotten about the potatoes until this morning, when I opened up the vegetable crisper in search of something and saw them rolling around. I decided to make a potato salad, but as I rarely have mayo on hand, I dressed it with a vinaigrette -olive oil, lemon juice, ground roasted cumin, salt, pepper and horseradish (yes, horseradish!).

6 small new red potatoes, boiled and quartered (skin on)
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
handful of cilantro, washed and chopped
1 tbs prepared horseradish
2 tbs olive oil
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs ground roasted cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper

Toss potatoes, onions and cilantro in bowl. Add salt and pepper. Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, cumin and horseradish. Lightly toss into salad. Enjoy!
