Lemon Waldorf Potato Salad

I served it recently with some Maple Chipotle Barbeque Braised Ribs for a very satisfying summer barbecue inspired meal. One that was much needed in the middle of a snowy Newfoundland winter.  

This is the kind of recipe that really is only a guideline so that you can make your own substitutions and additions like I did. I added lemon to the mayo. Plus, instead of using the traditional ingredients, walnuts and celery, I substituted hazelnuts and green onions.

Toasted hazelnuts bring great crunch!

Lemon Waldorf Potato Salad. Deliciously different!

This potato salad is great because of  all the textural differences. The crispness of the apples, the burst of the grapes, the creaminess of the potatoes and the crunch of the nuts. 

There’s a lot of flavour and texture going on in this simple salad. Keep it in mind for summer barbecues and picnics. Those days are  hard to imagine with about 4 feet of snow covering everything in St. John’s. I live in hope. 😉
