Ginger, Lemongrass Red Potato Salad recipe & pictures

This is a spin-off of a recent Cooking Light recipe. As a general rule, I do not eat cilantro, but this recipe calls for it – hubby thinks it helps round out the lemon-grass flavor. I trust he’s right. ­čÖé

So use it if you like it!

I would personally add more cayenne pepper (to taste) and possibly another┬ájalape├▒o…


  • 2 pounds red potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 T rice vinegar
  • 2 T dark sesame oil
  • 4 t ginger
  • 1 T lime juice
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of sugar
  • 1 jalape├▒o, minced
  • cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • green onions (to taste)
  • cilantro (if you like it)


boil red potatoes

meanwhile, mince jalapeño (add to bowl)

add liquids to bowl

Top with cayenne pepper, green onions & cilantro to taste

Refrigerate to serve cool.

Our green onions were a little sad looking, so I used chives instead (bummer, but turned out ok).
