Yield: 6 servings ( 1 serving = ½ cup)
1.5 lbs Yukon gold potatoes
¼ cup of chives or scallions, chopped
3 cups of kale, shredded
Green Goddess Dressing
1 cup of fresh spinach leaves
1 avocado, skinned and pitted
1 garlic clove
2 Tbsp of white wine vinegar
2 Tbsp of lemon juice
1 Tbsp of olive oil
1 Tbsp of fresh tarragon, chopped (or dried tarragon)
½ tsp of black pepper
In a large pot, boil the potatoes until a fork pierces the potatoes easily. Drain the pot of potatoes. Let the potatoes cool for about 10 minutes before cutting the potatoes into slices or quarters.
In a large bowl add the potatoes, chives, and kale. In a food processor or blender, add the green goddess dressing ingredients and mix until the dressing is a smooth consistency.
Pour ¾ cup of the dressing onto the potato salad and stir until the dressing evenly covers the entire potato salad. Your delicious salad is ready to serve!
