Grilled Potato Salad with Watercress, Green Onions, and Blue Cheese Vinaigrette - Recipes

-This salad would be delicious served on a bed of frissée salad with crispy lardons.

-Get the squash in the over before starting the dressing. Cook the potatoes while the onions are caramelizing.

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Preheat oven to 350° F. Cut squash in half. Place halves cut side up on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Distribute garlic, vinegar, and olive oil between the two halves. Cover with tin foil. Bake until very tender, gooey, and almost caramelized. At least an hour. Maybe more. Set aside and keep covered while cooking potatoes and dressing.

2 yellow onions, peeled and diced

2 tablespoon lard (or olive oil)

1 tablespoon sherry wine vinegar

2 teaspoons dijon mustard

Heat a sauté pan to medium heat. Add lard and let melt. Add onions, salt, pepper, and thyme. Stir occasionally. Don't let the onions brown. Once they're translucent, cover pan with a lid and turn heat down to low. Stir every 10 minutes or so. Make sure the onions don't brown. After about 45 minutes, remove the lid and burn off the excess liquid on medium heat. Add vinegar and cook for one minute. Turn off the heat. Whisk in mustard. Slowly whisk in some olive oil. Taste. If too acidic, add more olive oil. If it's too oily add more vinegar.

10 medium-sized yukon gold potatoes

Fill a large pot with cold water. Add salt. Peel potatoes and place them in the cold salty water right after you peel them. Bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer. Check for to see if they are done by inserting the tip of a knife. They're done when there is no resistance (about 25-30 minutes). Or just cut one open and taste. Drain, cover, and set aside until the dressing is ready.

handful of parsley leaves, coarsley chopped

Slice potatoes and place in a bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour over a few tablespoons of dressing. Mix gently with your fingers.

There&aposs more than one formula for a great potato salad. There are creamy potato salads, vinegar-based potato salads, warm potato salads, cold potato salads, and a world of add-ins to flavor up the mix. And then there are the potatoes: Russets, reds, Yukon Golds. We&aposll take you through the different styles of potato salads, show you how to cook the potatoes, and suggest top recipes to try.

Try this recipe for Best Classic Potato Salad from Nicole Mcmom, and watch the video above to get all her tips for how she makes her favorite potato salad.

1. Picking the right potatoes

The potatoes you use will make all the difference in the texture of your salad. Some cooks prefer waxy potatoes such as Yellow Finn, Yukon Gold, and red potatoes because they hold their shape when they&aposre cooked and keep their firm texture in the salad when they&aposre chopped up and tossed with dressing.

Russet or Idaho potatoes have a drier, starchier texture and tend to break down during cooking, chopping, and tossing with dressing. But that&aposs not necessarily a bad thing. This kind of potato soaks up dressing like a sponge and tends to yield a softer, creamier potato salad. Read up on how to choose the right potato for the recipe.

Tater Tip: Potatoes can add color highlights to your salad. Red potatoes are red on the outside and creamy white on the inside, while purple potatoes hold their color all the way through. You can also use sweet potatoes to add a cheerful touch of orange, as in this Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad.

2. Prepping and cooking potatoes

To peel or not to peel? If you&aposd like to add a little extra color and texture to your salad, leave the skins on. Just be sure to scrub them thoroughly with a vegetable brush before you cook them. Once you&aposve either scrubbed or peeled your potatoes, cut them into bite-size chunks, place them in a large pot, and cover them with water. Use a large enough pot to allow for several inches of head room to accommodate the boiling, starchy water. Bring the potatoes to a boil, then generously salt the water. Reduce the heat if necessary to keep the pot at a gentle boil.

How long to boil potatoes for potato salad? Depending on your definition of "bite-size," the potatoes will take between 8 and 15 minutes to cook. As soon as they&aposre tender enough to cut through easily, drain them and let them sit in the strainer for a bit to let the steam evaporate excess moisture. Remember that the residual heat will continue cooking the potatoes a little bit even after they&aposve been drained.

24 Totally Delicious Main-Course Salads

Make way for a new Greek salad (read: no feta, olives or grape leaves in sight). This warm plate combines grilled (or saut??ed) eggplant and zucchini, red and yellow cherry tomatoes, scallions and basil, celery and quartered hard-boiled egg. Instead of the usual oil and vinegar, the dressing is a tangy and rich mixture of plain yogurt, olive oil, garlic and sesame oil. Charred slices of country-style bread are the perfect accompaniment for sopping up the juices.

Sweet, spicy and savory flavors come together in this Asian-inspired salad, where a few tweaks help basic ingredients go a long way. First, you cook chunks of pineapple in a skillet until they brown on the bottom, which gives them a caramelized flavor. The second trick for major flavor: The recipe has you cook halved cherry tomatoes with a bit of oil and garlic, then crush them with a spoon to create an insta-sauce.

Here's one kale salad you may not have tried before: an a.m.-appropriate recipe that incorporates elements from a classic bacon, egg and cheese. It starts with a bed of shredded kale and sliced green apple in a maple-citrus dressing chopped turkey bacon, grated cheddar and fried eggs complete the meal.

Fried garbanzo beans add unexpected flavor and crunch to a chopped salad you can serve family style.

This simple salad lets the fresh, sweet flavor of mangoes shine through.

If salads don't quite fill you up try this hearty option.

The surprising combination of crab, green apple, avocado and Parmesan gives this salad a new spin.

In addition to the usual salad suspects (romaine, tomato, bell pepper), this Middle Eastern dish also includes avocado, black olives, fresh parsley and mint. Ripped pieces of toasted, seasoned pita bread add unexpected texture and beautifully soak up the garlic-lemon dressing.

From the butter lettuce to the vine tomatoes to the avocado, everything in this salad is fresh, fresh, fresh.

Lobster. Avocado. Mango. Enough said.

Although we most often see the Asian, green bok choy stir-fried, it also makes a wonderful salad base with its mild flavor and crunchy texture. In this dish, it complements coconut-soy marinated beef sirloin slices (which cook in less than 2 minutes), a coconut-lime dressing and chopped peanuts.

This salad features unexpected pairings of vibrant ingredients&mdashmache, avocado and cotija cheese with a citrus dressing&mdashand is sure to satisfy your craving for fresh wholesome flavors.

With its mix of vegetables, seafood and chicken, this salad is sure to have something to please every guest.

Cilantro and black sesame add zip to this Asian-inspired chicken salad.

No garden-variety side dish, this salad has more than half your daily supply of vegetables, including beets (loaded with folate, potassium, and antioxidants) and butternut squash (for beta-carotene). Walnuts and goat cheese make it a meal.

More than meets the eye, this hearty skirt steak salad features a medley of unexpected flavors: peppery watercress, shallots, chervil, hot chilies and fresh lime.

Endive gives this salad crispness, and a simple mayonnaise dressing gives it creaminess, but the main purpose for both, Ina Garten says, is to "bring out the shrimpness." This shrimp salad can be prepared earlier in the day and assembled with endive just before.

The vinaigrette-dressed greens provide a satisfying tang that plays off the richness of the bacon, which also provides a salty counterpart to the slight sweetness of the jumbo shrimp.

A traditionally Greek salad is elevated with some more exotic flavors.

Mediterranean olives, chickpeas and carrots get a zesty lift from a cumin vinaigrette.

In this delicious salad, the honey mustard vinaigrette serves as both a marinade and a dressing.

A spoonful of miso adds savory richness to a warm beef salad.

Eating this classic Caesar salad before a rich meal, like pizza or pasta, is a great way to ensure that you eat in moderation.



  1. Preheat your grill to 400°.
  2. Skewer the potatoes onto metal skewers (about 8-10 skewers). Mist (or brush) with olive oil until coated evenly. Sprinkle with a couple pinches of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Cook on your preheated grill for about 12 to 15 minutes, turning halfway through. Once the bigger potatoes can easily be pierced by a fork, remove and let cool for about 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine mayonnaise, Dijon, onion powder, aleppo pepper, garlic and black pepper. Once the skewers have cooled to touch, slide the grilled potatoes off and into the bowl.


  1. In a small bowl whisk together the red wine vinegar, the 2-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, the black pepper and slowly whisk in the bacon fat.
  2. To the bowl with the potatoes add in the chopped bacon, parsley and sliced green onions. Pour the bacon-Dijon vinaigrette over top and toss to coat.
  3. Serve warm or at room temperature.

20 Healthy and Delicious Summer Salad Recipes You&rsquoll Enjoy All Season Long

As the seasons change, so will the ingredients in your meals, especially if you prefer fresh toppings grown close to home. Now that summer is in full swing, opting for light, refreshing meals is key&mdashand that&rsquos where a balanced salad comes in.

Nope, we&rsquore not talking about your sad desk lunch. Salads can be filling, easy to make, and taste amazing. Plus, if you buy seasonal produce, you&rsquoll save some money and pack your dish with nutrients, says Lisa Moskovitz, R.D., C.D.N., CEO of NY Nutrition Group.

To achieve an ultra-satisfying summer salad, Monica Auslander Moreno, M.S., R.D.N., founder of Essence Nutrition, says you should aim to combine at least three different veggies, one protein, and a serving of healthy fats, plus lots of &ldquocolor and variety to be both psychologically and physically satiating.&rdquo Hues of oranges, reds, and greens not only look appetizing, but the variety puts more nutrition on your plate for a vitamin- and mineral-rich meal that does the body good.

Moskovitz notes that balance and experimentation go hand in hand. &ldquoA salad of just vegetables might seem like a great idea but will likely not keep you full for very long,&rdquo she says. &ldquoGet creative with your salads. Don&rsquot just rely on raw veggies. Add in some cooked or marinated veggies, like roasted zucchini and marinated mushrooms. The variety of textures and flavors will keep the salad interesting and exciting.&rdquo

Here are a few more tips to keep in mind when building a summer salad that&rsquos actually satisfying:

  • Opt for plant- or animal-based protein like edamame, chickpeas, beans, eggs, feta cheese, and grilled fish or chicken.
  • Try raw and cooked veggies like roasted broccoli, peppers, onions, and corn on a bed of various greens like kale, spinach, and arugula.
  • Add in healthy fats like nuts, seeds, avocados, or a light drizzle of olive oil.
  • Toss in fresh summery flavors with fruits like tangerines, berries, or watermelon.
