Adding vegetables to potato salad boosts nutrition, color and general appeal. Here, chef Goetze chooses Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, asparagus and celery to toss with cooked Yukon Gold potatoes, but any seasonal vegetables can work. The pickling component comes from the easy addition of bread-and-butter pickle relish or chopped pickles. 

Ingredients

9 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes
1 cup plus 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup plus 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1½ cups thinly sliced red onion
3 tbsp. minced garlic
2 tbsp. kosher salt
1 tbsp. granulated garlic
¾ tsp. ground white pepper
6 loosely packed cups outer Brussels sprouts leaves
2 cups sliced cauliflowerets
1½ cups sliced celery
1½ cups 2-in. pieces thin asparagus spears
1 cup bread and butter pickle relish or chopped bread and butter pickles
1½ cups finely chopped flat leaf parsley
1½ cups finely chopped chives

Steps

  1. Simmer potatoes in salted water to cover until tender, about 15 min.
  2. Meanwhile, make dressing: In large bowl, whisk oil, vinegar, onion, garlic, salt, granulated garlic and white pepper until blended.
  3. Drain potatoes and when cool enough to handle, but still warm, cut into ½- to ¾-in. dice, leaving skins on. Gently toss potatoes with dressing; fold in Brussels sprouts leaves and remaining ingredients. Season to taste with salt.

fridge system

We installed a remote refrigeration system as part of our cafeteria renovation. The main part of the system is located on the roof and controls all our refrigerated equipment, including the walk-in freezer and coolers, beverage refrigerator, etc. The system allows us to identify problems faster, and the elimination of individual condenser units cuts down on A/C bills as well as noise.

Students at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor will be served student-grown produce from the campus farm at dining halls this fall, M Live reports.

The dining team received its first batch of produce from UM’s on-campus farm in June, after students received the proper USDA certification to grow, harvest and deliver food to campus dining halls.

From Mrs. Dash Foodservice.

When it comes to offering exciting global flavors and ingredients, put it in the customer’s hands—with handhelds, that is. Burgers, sandwiches, wraps and shareables such as wings and tacos are fun, familiar and a value-packed way to leverage consumer fascination with ethnic menu items, including Asian, Latin, Mediterranean, and regional American specialties.

It’s also easy to add a global spin when you start with a popular menu staple like a sandwich. Not only is the sandwich a true citizen of the world—from a Portuguese bifana to a New Orleans...
