Yup, this is the best name I could come up with for these. Though my friend Colleen had a great suggestion with "Wee Deviled Potatoes".
I thought about the parts I don't love about potato salad. One being, it's kind of an ugly dish. Two, you have to eat it with a fork errrrr! This got me thinking. Do you have to eat potato salad with a fork? What about a potato salad finger food? Yes! I went straight to the store to get me some baby potatoes and give this a whirl.
This dish came out fantastic and just how I envisioned! A simple, yet elegant, potato salad.
Deconstructed Potato Salad
Makes 20 pieces
What you'll need:
10 baby red potatoes
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
1 carrot, grated
1/4 of a sweet onion
1 tbsp. chopped pickles or relish
1/3 cup veganaise or mayonaise
a dash of dry mustard
salt and pepper to taste
chives, chopped to garnish
What you'll do:
Wash the potatoes well and boil in a medium pot until fork tender. Drain and rinse them in cold water. In a small bowl, mix the rest of ingredients together minus the chives. Season to taste.
To assemble: Slice the potatoes in half and then slice a very thin layer off the bottom so it can stand flat. (you don't want these suckers rolling all over the place)
I hope you enjoy this new recipe as much as I enjoyed creating it : )
