thepartysinthekitchen.me

Here’s something delicious for your next BBQ or picnic. Since there is no mayonnaise involved, it can be served cold or at room temperature, making it perfect for any feast, anywhere. Even at home, so don’t wait to try it.

Caramelized Onion Potato Salad

Dressing

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar, maple syrup, or preferred sweetener
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Salad

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large red or yellow onions, sliced ¼ sliced
  • 3 pounds yellow or red baby potatoes
  • ½ cup lightly packed chopped fresh dill, about 6 sprigs
  • ½ cup sliced green onions
  • ¾ cup chopped dill pickles
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. In jar with tight fitting lid combine all dressing ingredients. Vigorously shake until combined. Set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in large pot over medium heat. Add the sliced onions. Cook, stirring every few minutes, for about 40 minutes (mine took longer) or until onions are very soft and deep golden brown. They should not be dry or crisp, but rather soft and almost jammy in texture. To achieve the soft, jamminess you may need to lower the temperature and add a little water. When finished, set aside to cool.
  3. While onions are cooking, place potatoes in a large pot, cover them with water, and bring to boil with no lid, over medium-high heat, then lower to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes or until just tender when pricked with a fork.
  4. Drain potatoes. Run some cold water over them to cool enough to handle. Cut them into bite-sized pieces. Place in large bowl.
  5. To the potatoes add cooled caramelized onions, chopped dill, green onions, and chopped pickles. Salt and pepper. Pour dressing over salad and toss to combine.
  6. Yum!

Her role as women’s leader in her local church provided a platform to teach, blog, and now, write. Her latest project, Living NOW series is one that was born from a desire to encourage the women she was teaching to know God through His Word, giving them a practical way to study the Bible for themselves. At present, Patty is a contributor to a variety of web-based publications including Refresh Magazine, Broken but Priceless Magazine, Life Letter Café, and SoCal Voice. In addition, she connects with her readers with regular posts on her two blogs, Girl on Adventure: Embracing the Journey Called Life and The Party’s in the Kitchen: Cooking Up Good Times in the Heart of the Home. Much of Patty’s writing is inspired by the full life she leads alongside her family and friends. She constantly looks for good reasons to gather people together, loves serving her community, and enjoys getting to know new places and cultures. Through these activities and others in life, God reveals His stories of faith, hope and love, and Patty means to tell others about them every chance she gets.
