"Caldo Verde" Potato Salad with Linguica & Kale

Meaning “green soup,” caldo verde is considered one of Portugal’s most famous dishes. Full of potatoes, sausage, and kale, it’s easy enough to modify into a tasty potato salad. Linguiça [lihng-GWEE-suh] is a Portuguese sausage that can be found in Latin American markets. If you can’t find it, substitute Spanish chorizo or pepperoni.
