The use of the microwave to cook the potatoes is not only speedy but saves energy. This was my experiment, and we liked it a lot. Serve warm or chilled.

  • Mix Caesar dressing, carrots, green onions, Hatch chile pepper, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Stir in potatoes.

Cook's Note:

I used russet potatoes because I happened to have them on hand, but usually I would recommend Yukon Gold or red potatoes for salad.

I used russet potatoes because that's what I had in my cupboard, and it turned out great. I didn't use the microwave to cook the potatoes because I was running my stove anyway, but I'm sure the microwave instructions would be a bit faster. I also added in some red pepper flakes for a bit of extra kick. Read More

The only chile my store had available was a Pablano but that worked nicely in this too. This salad was delicious and such a nice change from your every day potato salad that are usually smothered in mayo. Definitely a keeper! Read More
