Hot Potato and Sausage Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds small red boiling potatoes (unpeeled)
  • 1 tablespoon salt plus more to taste
  • 6 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 package Aidells Cajun Style Andouille Sausage (chopped)
  • 1 finely chopped garlic clove
  • 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 6 drops Tabasco sauce

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a large pot, cover the potatoes with water, add 1 tablespoon salt, and bring to a boil. Cover and cook for 20-30 minutes, until a knife inserted into a potato meets no resistance. Drain. When cool enough, cut each potato in half. Cut each half into ΒΌ inch slices and put in a large bowl. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of the cider vinegar and toss in the red onion, green onions and parsley.
  2. In a heavy pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and add to the potatoes. To the fat remaining in the pan, add the garlic, cayenne, mustard, black pepper, Tabasco and remaining 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar. Bring to a boil whisking constantly. This should loosen any sausage bits and produce a smooth creamy dressing. Salt to taste. Pour the dressing over the sausages and potatoes, and mix lightly. Serve immediately.
