Tangy Potato Salad with Leeks

Tangy Potato Salad With Leeks top

I love potatoes any way you dice them. After we received some leeks in our veggie box last week, I had to think for a bit on how I wanted to use them. We had some potatoes that needed to be used in our pantry, I thought that a potato salad would be a great way to combine them in a different way than a soup but still keep that great classic combo. I then tied it all together with a tangy and creamy dressing that would keep it bright and pair well with a variety main dishes.

The main points in this recipe are the potatoes, the leeks, and the dressing. Once you have these, you can really use that as the basis for making this salad your own and using whatever you have available or what you like the best. I didn’t do this in my version, but if you have some crunchy veggies hanging out in your fridge, dice them up and add them! Some diced carrots, celery, radishes, or snap peas would all be great and add some nice texture along with the peas. And hey, if you don’t have peas, don’t go out and get them! They aren’t what holds this recipe together.

This recipe holds well in the fridge and can be made in advance. If the potatoes seem to soak up some of the dressing, adding a dollop of yogurt or mayo and a splash of vinegar and give it a quick stir.
