More recipes from my prize winning Taste of Home cookbook.

WR Microwave Potato Salad

Microwaving potatoes for this tasty side is a handy timesaver—especially in warm weather. I found the original recipe in an old cookbook and added roasted peppers and olives for color and zip. Chop your ingredients while the potatoes cook, and the salad’s ready to chill in 20 minutes! -- Bonnie Carelli, Charlton Heights, West Virginia

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 minutes + chilling

YIELD: 10 servings


·                                 7 cups cubed red potatoes (about 2 pounds)

·                                 1 cup water

·                                 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese

·                                 1 cup mayonnaise

·                                 4 hard-cooked eggs, chopped

·                                 3/4 cup pimiento-stuffed olives, halved

·                                 3/4 cup chopped roasted sweet red peppers

·                                 1/2 cup sliced green onions

·                                 1/2 teaspoon pepper


·                                 1. Place potatoes in a shallow 2-qt. microwave-safe dish; add water. Cover and microwave on high for 9-11 minutes or until tender, stirring once. Drain and rinse in cold water.

·                                 2. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Add potatoes and gently toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Yield: 10 servings.

Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
