Southwestern Potato Salad / #FarmersMarketWeek

It is the third day of #FarmersMarketWeek, and I thought this was the perfect day for a side dish! I love a little bit of zip in my food, and this Southwestern Potato Salad, with its creamy sauce of both mayo and sour cream, onion, peppers, and cilantro for a start, definitely delivers the flavor!
Make this recipe a couple hours ahead of your serving time. Time spent in the fridge once the salad is put together, helps the ingredients come together in a melody of happy harmony.



Southwestern Potato Salad
(serves 7-10)
(printable recipe at end of page)

1.5 pounds Baby Red Potatoes
1.5  pounds Baby Yellow Potatoes
1 cob of Corn
Butter
sprinkles of Chipotle Seasoning
1 small Red Pepper
1 small Yellow Peppers
1/2  cup Mayonnaise
1 tablespoons Sour Cream
1/2 teaspoon Mustard
2 teaspoons Sugar
1-2 Scallions 
Fresh Cilantro




I used both red and yellow baby potatoes for this recipe. Boil the potatoes for 15-20 minutes, checking them after 10 minutes. Drain water from the potatoes. Cut potatoes in quarters and leave the skin on for a little change of pace. 



Use a white and yellow cob of corn for some color and flavor. Cut the corn from the cob, add a pat of butter, and cook the corn in a frying pan on the grill. 



Stir the corn around the pan to help with browning. As it browns, sprinkle the southwest seasoning on the corn and stir the kernels. Set them aside once they are browned.


Start browning the peppers on the grill. The only thing to do with these is to turn the peppers as they burn, so the peppers char all around. You don't want them completely burned. When you are done, the outer skin will have separated from the pepper. Pull it off and discard it. Chop the remaining pepper into small pieces or strips.



Make the dressing. In a small bowl, combine together the sour cream, mustard, and sugar.


Chop the potatoes into quarters, add the mayo and sour cream mix, the fried corn, and the scallion. Add the pieces of red and yellow pepper also. Chop cilantro and add to mix.


     
 Mix everything together. Cover bowl and place in fridge for approximately 2 hours. Mix contents a few times while refrigerated.
