This is another easy to prepare dish that will make everyone’s mouth water. This would end up into a potato salad with simple ingredients but so yummy and fulfilling. In Puerto Rico, potato salad is enjoyed not only during summer time but also during holidays. It is actually an important part of Puerto Rican’s holiday meal, either as a side dish or as a dessert. Pimientos and apple chunks added a sweet dimension to the taste of this salad. In this recipe, pimiento is used as one of its spices. It is a unique addition to the sweetness and nice flavors of this salad given that pimiento is a sweet red pepper that’s more flavorful than bell pepper. Usually, Puerto Rican’s salad is served in a lettuce leaf to look more attractive and delicious. The amount of time to prepare this salad is fair enough and it’s done with no hassle. Now, here’s what you need and how to make this Puerto Rican Potato salad.
  • 1½ lbs potatoes, peeled (68 5 g)
  • 4 eggs, hard boiled and chopped
  • ½ green bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 4 ounces pimientos, drained (112 g)
  • ½ cup mayonnaise (110 g)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 small apple, cut into small chunks
  • Lettuce leaves, for serving
  1. Cut potatoes into bite-sized cubes, and then place in a pot with salted water. Boil potatoes until tender for about 15 minutes. Drain well when done and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Transfer potatoes in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Stir in egg, bell pepper, onion and pimientos into warm potatoes.
  4. Stir in mayonnaise and apple chunks. Add pepper to taste.
  5. Serve in a lettuce leaf and enjoy!
You can also add some bacon bits to add a meaty dimension to this salad.
