1 (12-ounce) package smoked chicken sausage, quartered lengthwise and sliced (such as Gerhard's)
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
How to Make It
Steam potato, covered, 10 minutes or until tender. Place a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add sausage; sauté 2 minutes. Combine potato and sausage in a large bowl. Add celery and remaining ingredients; toss well to coat.
I was a bit hesitant about trying this recipe since I feel a little bit of this mustard goes a long way. I was pleasantly suprised! Very good and much healthier than the standard mayo recipes. I used Italian style chicken sausages w/ Provolone cheese that I picked up at Sams Club.
I've made this recipe twice and my family really liked it. This week I could not find my usual smoked chicken sausage instead I found a fajita spice chicken sausage. I changed the recipe a bit adding salsa instead of the mustard, green peppers and garlic instead of the celery, and I tossed in some smoked paprika (my sausage was not really smokey) and cumin. It was a good twist to this recipe.
This is our new go-to potato salad. The secret really is to make it the night before. Guests can't believe the creaminess is only from the Dijon mustard. For special occasions we like to use red, white and blue fingerlings, which we steam instead of boil. That ensures you don't get any waterlogged spuds and also the blue potatoes won't bleed.
