What is Papa Salada?
It's a traditional Colombian side dish and is a typical accompaniment to our asados or grilled meats. In my opinion, the best papas saladas are found in Medellin at a chain restaurant called Kokoriko, where their specialty is roasted chicken.
You only need 3 ingredients to make this Papa Salada recipe. Red small potatoes are the best option for this dish, because they retain their shape and they don’t get mushy after cooking. You also need water and salt.
