Peanut Potato Salad
500g new potatoes, scrubbed
50g thickly sliced cooked ham, diced
60 ml mayonnaise
15 ml peanut butter
To garnish: 50g salted peanuts
Boil or steam the new potatoes until tender. Drain well and place in a bowl. Add the chopped ham and toss lightly. Mix the mayonnaise & peanut butter together in a small bowl, add to the potato mixture and stir through.
Arrange the lettuce leaves on a serving plate and spoon the potato mixture on top. Sprinkle with the salted peanuts.
Now that’s worth a try – when I was a kid in Colorado one of my favorite sandwiches was peanut butter and mayo on plain old white bread and a Dutch friend has on occasion made a dish called sate – skeweres of pork in a peanut butter sauce
I love peanut butter but pb and potatoes? I think I’ll pass.
shackman – It adds another angle to a cold buffet.
WWW – My father would turn in his grave if I dished that up to him. He thought the only flavours fit to be added to potatoes were butter and salt.
I never turn up my nose at anything I haven’t tried yet. Besides being a bit of an ominivore, I also find that some combinations you’d never guess would work together surprisingly do.
Maybe that’s why I’m a bit past my ideal weight! 🙄
Fos – Would that make you a foodie?
Close. It would make me a fatty.
Fos – You are a long way from being a fatty. Mind you I seem to have magic-ed a few extra inches recently. 🙁
