TAHINI, POMEGRANATE AND CORIANDER POTATO SALAD - SALADE DE POMME DE TERRES AU TAHINI, À LA GRENADE ET CORIANDRE ~ ♥ ~ A GUEST POST FOR JENN AT "THE LEFTOVER QUEEN"

Potato Salad 6 4 bis

I have known the lovely Jenn Campus for quite a while now and have been visiting "The Leftover Queen" since its launching in 2007. During all those years I have followed her adventures striving towards the goals of sustainability, preparing traditional foods and seasonal feasting, and have admired her courage when she moved to Northern Vermont in order to live out her dream and become self-sufficient (growing her own vegetables as well as raising her own animals).

This home-spun culinarian has learned to cook from her maternal Calabrese Grandma, maternal Sicilian Grandfather, food adventurous mom and Scottish/German dad (who was famous for his “Leftover Soup”). It is then understandable why she is so passionate about using leftovers, being frugal and does a great job of whipping up healthy and economic meals from scrap.


Besides having a respectable and inspiring philosophy of life, being a real leftover queen and having an exciting genetic background (her DNA shows evidence of Scottish, English, German, Danish, Dutch, Mohawk and possibly Irish ancestry),  Jenn is also the creator of the "Foodie Blogroll", an ever-growing social network and community of thousands of food bloggers (as a matter of fact it is the biggest on the web) that offers weekly giveaways, many contests and a Publisher Program enabling you to earn revenue through advertising...

As she advocates healthy eating and enjoys creating gastronomic delights based on simplicity as well as everyday foods that can be traced locally and respect the earth’s cycles, I thought that it would be a brilliant idea to invent a potato salad which could be adapted according to what’s on the stalls of your regional farmers markets and savored as a fulfilling main course that can stand alone: a refined, quirky and scrumptious "Tahini, Pomegranate And Coriander Potato Salad" which provides cheap nourishment, incredible pleasure and is well-balanced, especially if paired with proteins such as fish, meat or eggs...

So, if that short introduction made your mouth water and your tastebuds tingle, tickled your curiosity, captivated your attention and gave you the urge to read my article, then please hop on over to "The Leftover Queen" in order to get a glimpse of my pictures, discover my recipe and have a look at Jenn's great site. Hopefully you'll enjoy my post...

Potato Salad 5 2 bis

Etant donné que beaucoup de mes lecteurs francophones ne comprennent pas forcément l'anglais et que malheureusement peu d'entre-eux auront la chance de lire mon billet invité et dernier article en date sur le merveilleux blog de ma collègue vermontaise Jenn de "The Leftover Queen", je me suis permise de traduire la recette qui y figure afin que vous puissiez aussi en profiter car je pense qu'elle pourra vous intéresser (vous pouvez tout de même y jeter un coup d'oeil car ses recettes nature sont vraiment passionnantes et mon article contient d'autres images que celles exposées ici).

J'espère que ma "Salade De Pommes De Terres Au Tahini, A La Grenade Et Coriandre" vous plaira car elle est divinement colorée, fraîche et savoureuse. Cette création personnelle est une ode à une cuisine économique, à tendance végétarienne et qui est loin d'être insipide/fade, pas raffinée et inintéressante...


Potato Salad 14 1 bis

~ Salade De Pommes De Terres Au Tahini, A La Grenade Et Coriandre ~
Recette par Rosa Mayland, Novembre 2011.

Pour 2-3 personnes.

Ingrédients Pour La "salade":
750g de Pommes de terre fermes, de petite taille
1 Carotte moyenne, grossièrement râpée
1 Poivron rouge, coupé en petits dés (voir remarques)
1 Oignon rouge (moyen), coupé en fines rondelles
30-40g de Jambon fumé, haché finement
50g de Noix de Grenoble, hachées grossièrement
Une grosse poignée de graines de grenade, ou selon goût
Coriandre fraîche, hachée, selon goût
Ingrédients Pour La "Sauce A Salade":
3 CS de Tahini
3 CS de Lait
1 CS d'Eau (ou plus si la sauce est trop épaisse)
1 CS de Vinaigre de malt
1 CS de Moutarde douce allemande (ou française - moutarde à l'ancienne)
1 CS d'Huile d'olive
1 CC de Crème de raifort
1 CC de Worcestershire sauce
1/2 CC de Sucre
1/3 CC de Paprika fumé
1/4 CC de Poudre d'oignon
Sel, selon goût
Poivre, selon goût


Méthode Pour La "Sauce A Salade":
1. Mélanger tous les ingrédients ensemble, jusqu'à ce que vous obteniez une sauce un peu épaisse, comme de la mayonnaise. 
Méthode Pour La "Salade":
2. Cuire les pommes de terres à l'eau jusqu'à ce qu'elles soit cuites, puis les égoutter et les laisser refroidir afin qu'elles deviennent tièdes. Les couper en deux dans la longueur.
3. Mélanger délicatement tous les ingrédients ensemble et ajouter la sauce, puis mélanger le tout.
4. Servir et décorer avec de la coriandre.

Remarques:
J'ai utilisé des pommes de terres Charlottes (pommes de terre), mais vous pouvez aussi utiliser d'autres variétés cireuses, comme la Désirée, Nicola, Bintje ou Kipfler qui sont parfaites pour faire des salades.

Quand j'ai fait cette recette les poivrons étaient encore de saison. Comme ils sont maintenant hors-saison, je vous recommande de les remplacer soit par 1 tasse  1 / 3 de courge muscade coupée en petits dés/fines allumettes ou la même quantité de choux de Bruxelles finement râpés ou de bettrave crue coupée en fines allumettes.
Si vous le désirez, il vous est possible de remplacer les noix de Grenoble par les noix de votre choix.

Idées de présentation:
Servir cette salade seule comme plat principal ou acompagnée de poisson fumé (saumon ou maquereau), rollmops, petites crevettes roses, d'oeufs cuits durs ou de viande froide.
