Brazilian Potato Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by chef FIFI

This recipe was given to me by my best friend who lived in Brazil for a while. Its a great barbecue side dish or potluck dish. *Measurements are approximate and are to taste* I personally like more lemon than stated below. This salad is supposed to be a little tart.

I made this to go with our Brazilian steak on the grill and we loved it! I used the lemon, and more than called for. It was so refreshing and the perfect choice to accompany our steak. Great side dish here!

Directions

  1. Cut potatoes in medium wedges and cook in salted water until done, but not smooshy soft.
  2. Drain.
  3. Put cooked potatoes into a bowl, while still hot, squeeze lemon over them (I'm estimating it at 1/2 to a whole lemon so add incrementally and taste); stir.
  4. Let cool.
  5. Meanwhile chop up celery and green onion.
  6. Once cooled add the mayonnaise,add celery and green onions, then shaved carrot stalk with a vegetable peeler, Stir until mixed but do not over stir or potatoes will become mushy.

  8. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to let the flavors meld.
