When Mike and I went on the wine trail with our friends this past weekend, I lucked out and was able to enjoy a lot of the food provided! However, there was one item that I really wanted to try but couldn't because it had ham in it: creole potato salad.
The one winery took their own spin on Dinosaur Bar-B-Que's creole potato salad and even provided the recipe! We have a Dinosaur Bar-B-Que cookbook so the original recipe is in there as well. I omitted some items just because I didn't feel like buying them but next time I want to add some egg to it.
Creole Potato Salad
2 pounds red potatoes (about 3 potatoes)
1 cup mayo
1/2 cup creole mustard, Zatarain's
1 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp Dinosaur's creole seasoning
Mike and I have made creole deviled eggs from our cookbook so we already have the creole seasoning prepared. Here are the ingredients for those interested:
1/2 cup paprika
1/2 cup granulated garlic
1/4 cup granulated onion
3 tbsp black pepper
2 tsp white pepper
2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup dried oregano
1/4 cup dried thyme
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tbsp sugar
To make the potato salad, I first boiled the potatoes in water on the stove. It took about 20 minutes and they were done when a fork went through them cleanly.
While the potatoes were boiling, I mixed the other ingredients in a small bowl and set it aside.
Once the potatoes were finished, I cut them into 1 inch pieces and put them in the bowl with the other ingredients. I mixed everything together and then sprinkled more creole seasoning on top. Then, I covered the bowl and put it in the refrigerator.
I did take a little bite of the potato salad once it was cool so that I could try it, shh don't tell Mike! It tastes great! It reminds me of the creole deviled eggs and next time I definitely want to add egg to the potato salad.
