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.

Ingredients

  • 8 potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • ½ cup bottled Caesar salad dressing

  • 2 carrots, coarsely grated

  • 6 green onions, sliced

  • 1 Hatch chile pepper, seeded and diced

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Place potatoes in a 2-quart microwave-safe casserole dish. Microwave on high, stirring halfway through, until tender, about 9 minutes. Drain any liquid that may have accumulated.

  2. 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.
