recipe: spicy red potato salad

August 3rd, 2012 | Posted by admin in RECIPES | Side Dishes

I always keep a bowl of hard boiled eggs in the fridge.  So when I saw this recipe from Cooking my way Back Home, I knew it was a perfect compliment to the red potatoes I had just picked up at the farmers market.  Potato salad was a common side in the summer at my house, crunchy, creamy, and spicy.  Enjoy!



• 2 pounds small red potatoes

• 6 large eggs

• 1 cup mayonnaise

• ⅓ cup finely diced celery

• ⅓ cup finely diced red onion

• 1 bunch green onions (including tender green parts), thinly sliced

• 1 ½ tablespoons horseradish mustard

• 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

• 1 tablespoon Town Hall Spice Mixture

• 1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce

• 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar

• Salt and freshly ground pepper




• In a saucepan, combine the potatoes with salted water to cover by 2 inches, bring to a boil over high heat, then lower the heat to medium, and cook for about 20 minutes, or until fork-tender. Remove from the heat, drain, and spread out in a single layer on a sheet pan to cool and dry.

• While the potatoes are cooking, you can hard-boil, peel, and chop the eggs into small pieces.

• In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, celery, red onion, green onions, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, spice mixture, Tabasco sauce, and vinegar and mix well.  Fold in the eggs and season with salt & pepper.

• When the potatoes are cool, quarter them lengthwise and place in a large bowl. Add the mayonnaise mixture and stir to coat the potatoes evenly. Taste and adjust the seasoning, then serve.
