Spanish Tapa Style Potato Salad

How do you Potato Salad ?

Cold salads of boiled potatoes with vegetables and / or ham or prawns with a dressing are quite popular world wide. Here is a lovely Sevillian Tapa style potato salad called Papas Aliñas ( dressed daddies ):

Serves 4:

1 kilo of potatoes of choice ( I like the red boiling type )
1 kilo of shrimp
3 hard boiled eggs
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 red onion
olive oil
*** RECIPE BELOW: Ali Oli with Sun dried tomatoes
parsley fresh chopped

1- Peel and boil the potatoes.
2- cut the onion in thin wedges
3- chop the bell peppers into strips
4- when potatoes are tender, run cold water on them and let cool so you can cut them into fork size chunks
5- sauté the shrimp until coral rosey color in olive oil with garlic minced
6- Having prepared the hard boiled eggs last night; peel and chop into salad; add some salt and pepper to taste
