Chorizo, Habanero and Chive Potato Salad by Mom De Cuisine

This recipe is a hoarder’s justification: I still had a little bit of chive aioli from my salmon wraps that I just couldn’t throw out; and since I had planned to throw some stuff on the grill, I thought I’d put it toward good use it in a potato salad. See, it’s good to hang on to stuff…you never know when you’ll need it again!

  • Put the potatoes in a medium pot and cover with water. Heavily salt the water and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Cook the potatoes until they are just fork tender. Drain the water and cool them.
