    Rinshinomori's Note:

    I learned how to make this during my chef assistant days at Draeger's Cooking School. This is a very different salsa because it uses a potato. Please use waxy white potato, Yukon, or red potato for this dish.

      Yum! This was sooooooooo good! We just filled corn tortillas with this for an awesome lunch! I added a couple of spoonfuls of salsa, green chilies instead of chili peppers, and green onion. We'll be having this again! I agree with magpie diner that this is so versatile! Love it! Made for Aussie swap Feb 2011.

      I never heard of putting potatoes in salsa, but it works well. I loved how spicy this was. I ended up serving it as side salad, although I bet it would be great with tortilla chips or inside a burrito. Thanks for sharing this unique recipe!

      This is lovely and fresh - love the potato twist. I made exactly as written except left out the chili peppers, just based on who we had over that day. It was still great - and used the leftovers next day for a cheese/cracker platter and my guests thought it was fantastic. Very versatile. Thanks!! Made for ZWT5, Cooks with Dirty Faces Team.
