I am a BIG fan of potato salad. Pretty much any time we eat out I always order a side of potato salad because it is something I rarely make at home. I remember as a young girl having delicious potato salads at family gatherings. I always felt like my mom was in the kitchen for hours dicing up everything – and honestly she probably was! I love all the flavors especially dill pickles and celery- big bursts of flavor in every bite! Last Christmas I decided I would try out the Whole 30 diet and with lots of prepping decided to get myself a food processor. After using it for the first time, the thought that came into my mind was ” How have I been married 10 years and survived without this thing?” Food processors are seriously amazing and save SO much time, especially for such a big job like potato salad!
I was looking through a cook book my father in law brought back from a recent trip from Ecuador and this recipe caught my eye. I love the creamy, mild flavor of queso fresco, and this looked like a fun twist on the regular potato salads I always eat. Adding more color with lots of veggies and diced ham, this potato salad was a big hit at a recent barbecue. The flavor was amazing – I felt like I could taste all the different flavors as usually mustard is one of the main flavors you taste. I really liked it and it will definitely be repeated.
See the Happy!
