Cilantro Cumin Potato Salad

I love potato salad, but I don't eat it that often.  It's not usually one of the go-to recipes in our kitchen.  I wanted to FINALLY use up that 10 pound bag of potatoes!  Man!  That bag lasted so long.  This was a thrown-together potato salad for the night we were "pretamping" ~~ pretend camping in our yard over the 4th of July holiday weekend. I still had some fresh cilantro in the kitchen fridge that I needed to use, so I created a Cilantro Cumin Potato Salad.  I leave potato skins on everything that I cook with potatoes, so this is a skin-on potato salad.

  We ate it with those YUMMY burgers that we made this weekend!

What we used:
10 small to medium red potatoes
1/2 cup diced green pepper
2 stalks green onions, snipped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, rough chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt

How we made it:
  • slice potatoes 1/4 inch thick
  • place potatoes in cold salted water and bring to boil
  • cook for 9 minutes
  • drain potatoes
  • while potatoes are draining, make dressing by combining mayonnaise, onions, cilantro, green pepper, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, EVOO, rice vinegar and salt.
  • place drained potatoes into medium sized bowl and pour dressing on top
  • stir all ingredients together
  • chill for an hour and a half
