Pesto Potato Salad

I was eager to put the pesto I made a couple days ago to use. I thought a potato salad served cold but with a little heat from green chilis would be perfect. I skipped the usual mayonnaise dressing and strong flavored ingredients like mustard and pickles and used my pesto instead as the dressing.

I used a Yukon Gold potato, celery, parsley, radish, green onion, red pepper flakes (no seeds), green bell pepper and my Curry Leaf, Green Chili & Melon Seed Pesto.

Cilantro, though strong flavored, seemed like an appropriate addition that wouldn’t compete with the subtle flavors in the pesto.

    1. Radishes are under utilized and tend to be forgotten and end up at the bottom of the crisper in the refrigerator. Fortunately they keep for a long time. Now that you mention it, radishes and cranberries might go well together.
