The Czar's Chipotle Potato Salad!

Jul 2, 2013

It's SUMMER!  With the temps in the 90's for at least a few weeks here in the Pacific NW, we figured we'd do our own take on the beloved summer-time dish....POTATO SALAD!  It's cool.  It's hip.  It's...potato-y.  Not to mention, that it tastes better after sitting in the fridge for a couple of days.

One drawback to potato salad is the mayonnaise-going-bad-in-the-sun factor.  Sure the dish is tasty, but if you give all of your guests food poisoning it will put a bit of damper on the party.  This recipe, however, is mayo-free and pretty darn tasty!  Set it out and worry not.  Enjoy!

  • 3 lbs. diced, cooked potatoes
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1 c. diced red bell pepper
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 c. vinegar
  • 1/4 c. lime juice
  • 1/3 c. olive oil
  • 3 T. honey
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 t. spicey brown mustard
  • 2 t. ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/4 c. The Czar's Pinot & Chipotle Sauce


Combine in large bowl and refrigerate.  Enjoy!

…though many producers augment their product (truffle oil) with a chemical compound that mimics the truffles’ taste and aroma, making for a more potent but less refined taste. WE PREFER THE PURER CHARACTER OF ALL-NATURAL OILS LIKE THE JOEL PALMER HOUSE OREGON WHITE TRUFFLE OIL, WHICH CONTAINS THE ESSENCE OF OREGON TRUFFLES (It’s the ONLY truffle oil currently sold in this country containing domestically grown truffles).
