Rustic Chopped Potato Salad

I made this up the other day when wanting a salad because of the hot temperatures but knowing that my hubby and kids would need more substance in the salad to be satisfied for dinner. It was a delicious success!

Rustic Chopped Potato Salad
  • 1 head of Romain lettuce, washed and chopped
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 6 turkey hotdogs, sliced
  • 3 large potatoes, halved and then quartered into small wedges
  • 1/2 cup shredded Paremesan cheese
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 2 Tbsp prepared yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tsp lemon pepper
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • dash of pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dill
Place lettuce and tomatoes in a large salad bowl and chill in fridge. In a skillet on medium high, add oil and potatoes. Add mustard and lemon pepper and fry until golden and crisp. Add hotdogs and toss in pan for a few minutes. Set aside. Drain oil from pan and use for your dressing (will add nice smokey flavor to salad), add oil as needed.

In a small blender add the pan oil, lemon juice, pepper, salt and dill. Blend well. Place potatoes and hotdogs into chilled salad. Pour dressing over and add Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle additional salt or pepper to liking. Toss and serve!
