Peruvian Potato Salad

4 servings
About 1-1/3 cups sauce

 

Peruvian Potato SaladThis salad is most flavorful when the potatoes are warm, but it is equally enjoyable when chilled. Use Peruvian blue potatoes if available, but any all-purpose or boiling potato will work.

 

Heat in a small skillet over medium heat:
1 tablespoon peanut oil

Add:
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped

Cook until soft and lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

Transfer to a blender and add:
1/2 cup roasted unsalted Spanish peanuts, skins removed
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup crumbled ricotta salata or farmer's cheese
1-1/2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 fresh jalapeño or other chili pepper, quartered and seeded
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric

Blend the sauce until smooth and set aside.

Cover with cold water and bring to a boil:
4 to 6 Peruvian blue, Yellow Finn,
   or boiling potatoes (about 1-1/2 pounds)

Cook until tender when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife, about 25 minutes. Drain and, when cool enough to handle, peel and slice into rounds.

Arrange on 4 salad plates:
Lettuce leaves

Top the lettuce with the potato slices and, if desired, season with:
Salt and ground black pepper

Spoon the reserved sauce over the potatoes.

Garnish each plate with:
Hard-boiled eggs
Pickled onions
Black olives
Cooked corn on the cob,
   sliced into 2-inch-thick rounds
