Opening Day Creamy Potato Salad

This is the one where I start out super excited about baseball and then realize that baseball just means more work and less attention, and zero opportunity for watching crap TV on Bravo.
yay.

Creamy, tangy potato salad with capers and celery

Tomorrow is MLB Opening Day, y’all! What’s that, you say? You don’t celebrate opening day in your house? Well, it is an unofficial holiday around these parts, and by these parts I mean my house. And pretty much only at my house considering the nearest MLB team is four hours away. But we root for the LA Dodgers in this house (which is approximately 32 hours away, so, obvi), and once you have blue running through your veins, you never become a fair-weather fan. Which is good, considering the weather in Indiana compared to SoCal is not fair at all. But, anyway… Yay baseball! I have like 8 months of non-stop baseball on TV with absolutely no option for getting my crappy fake-reality Bravo TV fix, non-stop fantasy league banter, non-stop trade rumors, and chauffeuring the kid to practice, and games… yay. baseball. ;/

In any event, opening day usually means it will rain here. My husband tries to take off work so we can grill and have a couple beers and maybe sit on the patio for a spell… you know, kick spring off with the start of baseball. But the weather almost never cooperates. And wouldn’t you know, there is a 30% chance of rain tomorrow (par for the course). That’s no big issue because I have learned to roll with the opening day punches. I plan to make beer brats with sauteed peppers and onions, but if the weather stinks, we’ll do oven-BBQ chicken. Yum. In either case, we will have this super delish*ish creamy potato salad with capers.

Super delish potato salad with a zippy kick from capers and grapefruit

I love potato salad, but I find that it is a difficult thing to get right. They are often really sweet (by my taste) and I am not a fan of that. Not at all. I like a tangy potato salad. One that is well dressed, but not sloppy. I like a hint of mustard, but not too mustardy. I usually add dill pickle relish or tiny bits of chopped dill pickle because I like the salty-sour pop. That’s how I like all my creamy salads really… egg salad, chicken salad, pasta salad. I want some creaminess, some tang and some salty pops. I often put capers in my egg salad as I think it balances well with the mayo and mustard, adding a zing in something that can be overly rich. So I thought why not do that with a potato salad? So I did. And it was pretty fantastic.

A twist on the classic creamy potato salad, this version adds a tangy kick with capers and grapefruit juice

This potato salad is creamy and rich, with a noticeable but not overpowering tang from the capers and mustard. A hint of grapefruit juice adds an almost unidentifiable brightness… like you can taste the brightness, but not grapefruit or even citrus for that matter. I also always add celery and onion to my potato salad. It just sort of belongs, and adds a depth of flavor that is a little unexpected. But if you hate that flavor, of course you can make it your own. Substitute the celery with yellow pepper and add a hint of chopped green onion for a milder flavor.

Awesome potato salad... not too sweet, not to vinegary, perfectly creamy... awesome with BBQ chicken.

So here is to looming Spring and BBQ season and endless baaaaseball, and short-sleeves and sandals! To open windows and hiking and fresh veggies! And here is to potato salads and cold beers, and laughter on the patio! I am soooo ready for spring!!! Give my recipe for this creamy potato salad a try at your next get-together and be sure to send me your favorite BBQ and baseball pics this Spring and Summer. Just post them with #foodieish on instagram or twitter.

[recipe title=”Creamy Opening Day Potato Salad” Servings= “8” time= “25min” difficulty=”easy”]

Creamy, tangy potato salad with capers and celery

Ingredients

  • golden-flesh potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces 9 cups, diced
  • celery, diced 3 stalks
  • onion, finely diced 1 cup
  • mayonnaise 1 cup
  • prepared mustard 1 tbsp
  • celery salt 1/2 tsp
  • chopped capers 2 tbsp
  • fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice 1 tbsp
  • sugar 1 tbsp
  • hard-boiled eggs, sliced 3 large
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • paprika and parsley for garnish

Directions

  1. Peel and chop potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Place in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until potatoes are just tender but still crisp. Drain and place back in empty pot and cover with cold water to stop the cooking process.
  2. Chop celery and onions and set aside. Combine mayo, mustard, celery salt, chopped capers, grapefruit juice, sugar, and milk in a bowl large enough to accommodate your potatoes. add celery and onion and stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary. It may appear over-salted, but that will dissipate once the salad has chilled.
  3. Drain the potatoes once again, and add to the dressing mixture and carefully combine, taking care not to mash the potatoes. Once combined, layer hard-boiled egg slices on top, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. Add paprika and parsley as garnish immediately before serving.
