Weekend Kitchen: Caesar Potato Salad with Sugar Snap Peas

*If you would like to enter my Amy Butler apron giveaway please click here!
I've had this recipe ripped out from Bon Appetit magazine for a while now and finally made it last weekend.  I'm glad I did. . .I really like it!
- 1 1/2 pounds unpeeled assorted fingerling potatoes or baby potatoes (such as white-skinned, red-skinned, and purple), cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices

- 8 ounces trimmed sugar snap peas
- 1 bunch radishes, trimmed, sliced
- 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 garlic clove, pressed
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
First, start by prepping the veggies.
Boil potatoes until almost finished (about 10 minutes).  Add sugar snap peas and boil for about a minute longer.
Drain and let veggies cool.  Add radishes and onions.
Next, prepare dressing.
In small bowl whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and garlic clove.  Whisk in Parmesan.
I thought this potato salad was delicious.  I definitely will be bringing this on picnic lunches to the beach this summer!
Original recipe is from Bon Appetit.

Alissa thank you for sharing this. I love sugar snap peas ( and so do the kids) so I am going to try this to change up the plain old roasted sugar snaps peas we usually devour! H

I may have to try this...against my better no cooking judgement. The pictures are so darn pretty, and I happen to love potatoes and snap peas... just never thought they would work together in a salad.
