Awesome Mexican Potato Salad with Alioli, Chili, and Coriander

Not just for summer, salad recipes such as potato salad with chili coriander and alioli are enjoyed all year round. There are many forms of salads. Serve them hot, warm, or cold. Potato salad is delicious regardless of the temperature called for in the recipe, although chilled potato salad is the favorite type. What makes salads so popular? Much of it has to do with the many ingredients that combine to make the finished product. Shrimp, seasoned hamburger, cheese, pomegranate seeds, or pears add an extra pizzazz to salads and can turn it into an elegant main dish.

Mustard is one of the more common ingredients in potato salad. There are quite a few varieties of sweet mustards used for dips, dressings, and glaze. Honey mustard is extremely popular. Other great flavors include sesame ginger mustard, sweet and hot mustard and maple mustard. Honey mustard is easy to make by combining equal amounts of mustard and honey. Adding a bit of olive oil and white vinegar turns the honey mustard combination into a dressing.

Hot mustards are popular also and really cover mustards that are prepared to bring out the pleasantly spicy flavors present in mustard seeds. Some of the mustards that have been made spicy with peppers and other ingredients still are included in the category of hot mustards, however, such as chipotle pepper, horseradish mustard and jalapeno mustard. Try different mustard varieties in a small bowl of potato salad. Let it chill in the refrigerator overnight so the tastes blend. If you like the flavor, add it to the next potato salad you make.
