Make-Ahead Lunch Salads (Slide 5)

(Slide 5 of 14)   Start at the beginning | View recipes as list

This hearty steak and potato salad is inspired by salpicón, a favorite dish in Chile. The purple potatoes add vibrant color but you can substitute any young “new” potatoes that are harvested early in the season—even small fingerlings would work. Serve on a bed of spicy mesclun greens to round out the meal. This recipe can easily be doubled.
