Jalapeño Cilantro Lime Potato Salad
Thank the LAWD that the Bachelorette was finally back on after a week hiatus and a dramatic Bachelor in Paradise lawsuit. The show starts off with dudes yelling at each other and Eric being very whiny, if you will. His voice is pretty much the worst. And Lee’s hair is getting out of control tall. Every episode it enlarges. How does it even get that tall? I can’t even tease my hair that big and I hate him so much for that. So the entire first part of the show is Lee’s hair is growing and a racist undertone begins to form. Here’s some things we know about Lee –
- He’s a racist
- He loves making men angry
- He uses his grandma’s death from cancer to get Rachel to like him more
- He uses glue in his hair…or it may be other bodily products, if you get what I’m putting down
- He says yes ma’am to the girls he’s dating – so creepy
- He likes to click his tongue
- Oh, and he’s a racist
The show really takes a swift right turn when Rachel is suddenly crying about the pressure she’s under because she’s the first black bachelorette. I wish the producers could have explained it a tad better, or at all, because she’s just suddenly crying for no apparent reason other than ABC giving her absolutely no hope in ever finding a man on the show.
So surprise surprise, the racist stays on the show and Diggy, Ken Doll and Jawline are given the boot. Did anyone else notice that when Dean and Brady (Ken Doll) were talking about how to properly pronounce quirk, Brady was combing his hair with a small hand that fit on his fingertip? Anyone? That was my favorite moment of the entire show. And did anyone else notice that the Russian guy was wearing a purple zebra print jacket? How was that not highlighted more?
After the rose ceremony, they move on to Hilton Head, which I’m SO jealous of. I want to go there so bad. It’s on my travel bucket list. The first date was with Dean, who I love because he has super white teeth and baby blue eyes. He may look 18 but he’s still adorbs. I actually fell in love with my husbands teeth before I fell in love with him. Is that weird? Whatever. Their date includes a trip up into the sky on a blimp. When Dean finds out that he’s be going in the blimp, his face drops and it’s pretty obvious he’s picturing the Hindenburg disaster. But surprise Dean, that’s just your relationship that’s playing out on national television. They finish their date off with an extra non-surprising surprise – a concert where they dance on stage in front of everyone on a platform. What’s more romantic than everyone filming you while you make out to an artist you’ve never heard of?
For the group date, they head out on a boat where they sip on cocktails. The boat was called Vagabond which I definitely read as vaj. Well on the Vaj boat, Josiah decides he is alpha male and flexes his nipples while other guys decide that rapping is the way to win Rachel’s heart. This girl is a lawyer and they decided rapping was the way to really rev her up. Well after the raps about farting end, they head to a spelling bee. Where they all fail miserably. They start the words off with easy ones like squirt (WTF?) and caress but then they spiced it up a little bit with a little bigger words. My favorite part was Eric spelling facade – physde. When the hell have you ever spelled a word like that, Eric? Riddle me that. But as the words progressed to boutonniere (which I had to spell check) and polyamorous (what does that even mean?), Josiah got the word stunning. How is that fair? Since Josiah ended up winning, he made out with his trophy which makes sense because his mouth can’t reach his flexed boobs.
The end of the show is filled with Rachel saying she would move to Wisconsin for someone. Stop, Rachel, just stop. No offense to Wisconsin people, but Dallas is sunny and warm and has lots of gluten free options. I had the best cupcake of my life there. Don’t move to Wisconsin for Peter, the guy whose high school yearbook goal was to be on the Bachelor.
The show ended with Lee being more racist. Ok, not really, but he sure is a d*ck ball. Who is also a racist.
Can’t wait for next weeks episode when hopefully someone steps on his tiny head. Fingers crossed!

For the part where Rachel was crying about the pressures of being a black woman, she mentioned the things people would say. I thought it was about the social media rift she would get because, the next scene is the rose ceremony, and the first 7ish guys she kept were all white.
The spelling bee made me die a little inside. Good thing those guys have their looks going for them because they can’t spell worth a damn. I’m still team Alex Purple Suit Jacket, Peter has now dropped on my list due to his lack of intelligence, and Dean has moved up because he’s such a cutie! 😉
I think Rachel crying was because of the rose ceremony…and her probably being pressured by producers to keep General Lee. If that were me I would have been furious. I wish they would have showed what they discussed before that led up to that though!!
ok i totally did that get that so thank you for explaining that!
So you recommend serving this hot or cold? Thanks! Making this tonight!
i personally like it cold but you can eat it either way!
Hahahaha!! I live in wisconsin and I agree, it is not worth moving here for someone! Sure it has its perks, BUT if I was given the chance to move away it would be Denver! Love your nicknames for the guys voted off, hilarious!!!!
hahahah i literally have no idea what their names are so i have to create nicknames
Yum, yum and ha, ha … thanks for a morning giggle and potato inspiration!
I did not know you had play-by-play of the Bachelorette on your site. You are hilarious! I did notice the little hand comb thing and thought…”Wait, did I see that right?” Glad to know that you are right there with me noticing the most important aspects of the show. I will say that I cringe every time Bryan kisses her. It appears that he’s trying to swallow her face. But any who….POTATOES! (and I don’t even need my baby hand comb to peel them!)
every week whenever the bachelor is on!!
I just wish the shows weren’t so friggin long! I like your recaps so much because I just can’t with 90 min episodes. Rachel is a doll and is clearly having to keep that Lee guy.
All your recipes are the best and love explicit podcasting!
i tape it and watch it the next day so i can fast forward through the commercials!
Hilton Head and Savannah are a MUST!!! Going for my honeymoon because it’s our favorite place for vacation!
ooooh i really need to make that trip happen!
So I cannot stand watching the bachelor, but I LOVE hearing and reading you talk about it. It makes it so fun.
Thanks for entertaining me by explaining horrible shows so I don’t have to watch them. Living vicariously through you 😀
hahahaha glad i could help!
This is hilarious! Excited abouted the potato salad. Really big question. Where did you find the best gluten free cupcake in Dallas?
This recipe looks absolutely delicious! It reminds me of Swahilian/Portuguese piri piri potatoes which happen to be super popular in Irish grocery stores and fresh markets. My wife and I backpacked this year and ate piri piri potatoes when we had the chance. SO freaking good. Going to make these this week because I’ve been craving them.
This looks so delicious. Thanks for the the laughter too
I made a triple batch of this potato salad for a birthday celebration last weekend, and it was simply amazing. I also just realized rereading the recipe that I used Himalayan pink salt instead of pink peppercorns. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It still tasted great!! 10/10 would make again.
glad you liked it, laura!
Just made this for our 4th of July party and holy crap SO yummy! I used some Primal Kitchen Chipotle Lime mayo instead of the olive oil because I’ve been dying for an excuse to open the jar and it turned out so good! I’m sucker for anything cilantro/jalapeno so I will definitely be making again. Such a fun spin on potato salad!!
that sounds delish! glad you liked it!
Just made this for 4th of July and it’s a huge hit!
woohoo!! glad everyone liked it!
10/10. Juli, you have knocked it out of the park again!
woooohoooo! thanks for the love, alex!
Oh my goodness, just devoured this! So good. I loved that it was bright and fresh vs heavy and mayo-y. Definitely a keeper. Thank you!
This recipe is a SLAM DUNK! It’s so easy to prepare and a total crowd-pleaser. Light, fresh, and the perfect accompaniment to any summer BBQ.
I’m making this for a third potluck this summer and I’ve passed the recipe along to four people so far…. I literally cannot overstate how good this is!!! Possibly my favorite recipe on your site. So easy yet so delicious.
yayyyyy!! thanks for the love Stef!
