Smoked Potato Salad

 

I have a GrillDome cooker/smoker and I was inspired to try smoked potatoes when I read an article from Fine Cooking titled "Ten Things You Didn't Know You Could Smoke." The process worked really well and I developed this salad, with a dressing to compliment the subtle smokiness of the potatoes. It's a great partner to any grilled food. Here are the instructions for smoking the potatoes, which I included in my recipe: http://www.finecooking.com/articles/10-things-you-didnt-know-you-could-smoke.aspx

What you will need

2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed but not peeled, each one pierced several times with a fork

1 large stalk of celery, cut into small dice

1 carrot, medium-sized, peeled and coarsely grated

2 tablespoons chives, finely minced

1 tablespoon flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

2 teaspoons fresh marjoram leaves, finely chopped (substitute cilantro, if you prefer)

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup sour cream

1/2 Chipotle pepper, finely minced

1 teaspoon Adobo sauce, from the canned chipotle

1 tablespoon lime juice

Kosher salt, to taste

Freshly ground pepper, to taste

2 eggs, hard-cooked and sliced

Additional chives and marjoram leaves, for garnish
