Looks like I’ve been craving heat lately because the last three recipes I shared with you are spicy. Believe it or not, that’s non-intentional. I hope you can handle the heat. Not exactly an Irish dish, this potato salad with spicy cilantro-walnut pesto is simple and offers a nice change from traditional creamy salads.
Potato Salad with Spicy Cilantro-Walnut Pesto
- 2 pounds red potatoes
- 1 large bunch cilantro (about 2 cups)
- 1 jalapeño pepper, roughly chopped
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/2 cup flaxseed oil
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- Salt, to taste
Wash and cut the potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Place in a large pot and cover with cold water. Add a generous pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender (10 to 12 minutes).
Process until smooth. Taste and season with salt.
Serves 8 as a side dish.
