Original recipe yields 8 servings



  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place the potatoes into a saucepan, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.
  2. Place the peppers into the oven so that they sit directly on the rack. Roast, turning every 10 minutes or so, until evenly charred. Place in a paper bag to sweat, then remove the peel when they are cool enough to handle. Remove the stem and seeds, and chop.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the still warm potatoes, peppers, eggs, celery, onion, sweet pickles and olives. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the lime juice, vegetable oil, salt, pepper and mustard powder. I like to use a high speed mixing wand to help it emulsify. Pour over the potato salad, and stir to coat. Adjust seasoning to taste and serve.

This was the perfect side for my Labor Day BBQ. I wanted something a little different and this was it. The lime dressing made it nice and zesty and I loved the idea of adding chiles and green olives. I will be making this again. The only things I did differently was I used red onion instead of white, added a little bit of fresh cilantro and to the dressing, added a teaspoon of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix. I really enjoyed this salad and so did my family. Thanks Lars.



really tasty



I'm making it the 2nd time. My family really enjoyed it -- different, yet all the flavors come together nicely!
