Ingredients

8c water
6 potatoes (3lbs)

dressing:
3/4 c canned tomatillos, packed
1-2 canned chipotle peppers plus 1t adobo sauce
1T fresh lemon juice
1t brown sugar, packed
1/2 t salt
1T fresh cilantro
1/3 c diced celery


1. Bring water to boil in covered pot.


2. Meanwhile, peel the potatoes and cut them into 1" cubes. Cover with cool water until you are ready to cook them, so they won't turn brown. When the water boils, drain the potatoes, and carefully ease them into the boiling water. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until tender.


3. While the potatoes simmer, puree the tomatillos, chipotles, and adobo sauce, lemon juice, sugar , and salt in a blender. When the potatoes are cooked, drain them and quickly plunge into cold water to stop cooking. Drain again and place in serving bowl. Add tomatillo dressing and toss well. Stir in the cilatro and celery.


4. Serve warm or chill for 30 minutes before serving.

Moosewood Restaurant New Classics

This is an amazing dressing for cold pasta salad. Puree all the ingredients - except the cilantro and celery - in the food processor, toss with bow tie pasta, chopped fresh tomatoes, the celery and the cilantro, and chopped black olives. So delicious. Thanks for this recipe. It was worth a relentless hunt for canned tomatillos! Molly
