Warm Potato Salad with Curry Vinaigrette – It’s as good as it sounds!

 Thank you, Patak’s and Mom Central Canada, for helping me to create a dish that I can’t help but nibble on before dinner is on the table!

Well, ’tis the season of salads! Yet, as we’re heading into the third week of the New Year, lots of people are chucking their resolutions to the wayside. 

Carbs are tasty. Sugar is very nice. 

And I agree. But that doesn’t mean that our culinary adventures have to die with our diets. (And don’t even get me started on diets. Let’s just pledge to eat whole food together, and everything will be all right. Agreed? Agreed.)

 I’m starting a new series on Suburble during these last two weeks of January: Salad Love.

Salad Love Button
Don’t get me wrong. I love a good tossed salad with a nice dressing. But not every night. You start to develop a certain salad-apathy. 

And so, I’m going to share the salads that I like to make. The salads that I think are worth making for yourself and your family. 

The first salad is a warm potato salad with a curry vinaigrette. This is a simple and delicious salad that I could not stop myself from eating right out of the serving dish.

Manners: I have them. 

Steaming Potatoes for Warm Potato Salad - Suburble.com

I like to steam my potatoes rather than boil them. I feel like they’re tastier, somehow.

Patak's Madras Curry in a Curry Vinaigrette - Suburble.com

 I love the taste of Madras Curry – it’s a hot and spicy red curry – so start with a tablespoon in the dressing, and add more as your tastebuds see fit.

Serve this salad warm, as a side dish (perhaps with that fab tandoori chicken from a few months ago?) or serve it cold, with a sandwich or a barbecued main. It’s delicious both ways!

 What I love about this dish (aside from the addictive vinaigrette) is that it’s really simple and quick. Add a new taste to the table this month! Salads don’t always have to be the same-old, same-old.

And hang around for more salad inspirations this month. It ain’t easy always eating “greens”.

    I love warm potato salad….actually I pretty much love potato anything. This sounds yummy. Have you had the warm potato salad at Earl’s before? It’s the best!

      I haven’t had it.

      I know. I live under a rock.

      But I’ve seen copycat recipes all over the place. I’m going to have to try it!

    I’m all about potato salad, but I can’t stand the ones drowning in mayo. This looks like it’s got tons of flavor with the curry paste.

      It’s so delicious! And while, unlike a lot of people, I am a fan of the traditional potato salad, there’s something about warm potato salads that I love so much! Let me know if you try it!

    This is so totally my kind of salad! I’m allergic to eggs so the regular potato salad doesn’t work for me. It looks super easy to make too! ~Thea

    That sounds so yummy and having no mayonnaise is perfect for me! And who knew Patak’s has an Ambassador program. I have been using their spices and curries for years.

      I was quite thrilled to start working with them. I’ve been using their spices and sauces for years too! And Mr. Suburble agrees – no mayonnaise for him, either.

    Love curry! I’ve never made warm potato salad, but Earls makes one (very deadly), and I’ve always wanted to try one. This may be my first one!

      I haven’t had the Earls’ salad, but I’ve heard so many great things! I might have to make the copycat recipe just to see what the fuss is about!

    I am really enjoying your salad love series – it’s helping inspire me to up the veggies! This one looks delish. I really like Pataks sauces, but I have never thought to use them in a salad – great idea.
