Recipe Wednesday: Dijon Potato Salad

Recipe Wednesday is back!

Sorry for missing it for a couple of weeks, I've been super busy and not cooking at home as much as I should be!

This past Saturday afternoon I decided to use up some of my CSA veggies and came up with the idea to make a potato salad with a Dijon base & some yummy additions.

All of these vegetables are from Great Country Farms in Virginia, delivered to me as a part of the CSA I'm in.  If you haven't seen the post, or if you're unfamiliar with what a CSA is, read about it here!

Ingredients
 + Red potatoes 
[I had 5] 

+ Green beans 
[Ends trimmed, cut up]

+ Green pepper [Chopped up]

+ Tomatoes [Cubed]

+ Horseradish

+ Minced garlic

+ Red pepper flakes

+ Light mayo

+ Whole grain mustard 

+ Dijon mustard 
[Ex. Golden's]

+ Capers

+ Sea salt / pepper

What To Do...
1. Boil red potatoes [skin on] for 7-10 minutes...make sure you check for tenderness around the 7min mark, if they're not ready yet then go ahead for the full 10mins
   
2. When the potatoes are done remove them from the boiling water & run under cold water.  DON'T GET RID OF THE WATER! Put the green beans in the hot water for about 5 minutes to soften them up a bit

3. Cube the potatoes and place in a large bowl.  Add mayo [start with a reasonable amount, don't go overboard] and Dijon mustard/ whole grain mustard to taste - mix it up.

4. Add in however much horseradish & minced garlic you'd like - then add in the green beans and green pepper - toss to coat


5. Taste your mixture and add in salt & pepper 

6. Carefully add in the tomatoes - you want to be on the gentle side with them so don't roughly mix 

7. Carefully add in capers & refrigerate!

This is a super yummy side item.  I made sure I used fat-free mayo, and not too much salt.  The garlic & horseradish, aside from the main flavor of the Dijon, should be enough where you don't need added salt!
