Chipotle Potato Salad

Cook Time: 8 min
Level: Easy
Yield: 4 servngs


* 4 large russet potatoes, about 2 1/2 pounds, peeled and thinly sliced
* Salt
* 2 chipotles in adobo sauce, chopped, plus 2 tablespoons of sauce
* 3 tablespoons orange marmalade
* 3 tablespoons orange juice
* 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
* 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil. eyeball it
* 1 small red onion or 1/2 large, chopped
* Handful chopped cilantro leaves, 2 tablespoons
* Couple sprigs fresh oregano, finely chopped (or a couple pinches dried)
* Salt and pepper


Place potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil
and season water liberally with salt and cook the potatoes until just
fork tender, 8 to 9 minutes.

Combine chipotles, sauce, marmalade, juice, vinegar in a bowl then
whisk in the extra-virgin olive oil.

Drain the potatoes well, return them to hot pot to let water
evaporate, then add immediately to dressing. The dressing will be
better absorbed by warm taters. Toss with onions and herbs and season
the salad with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve warm or chill. Drizzle
a little more extra-virgin olive oil over the salad if it gets dry.
