I had the chance to play with a few of Dreamfarm’s toys (okay, they aren’t really toys, they are serious kitchen tools) and replace lots of my old, never-used gadgets and tools.

This Lebanese Potato Salad recipe is a tasty mix of potatoes, scallions, garlic, mint, lemon juice, salt, pepper and olive oil.

Check this one out – they call it “Vebo,” and it is a magical vegetable tool. It’s made from silicone and it boils, steams, and strains.

Why does the silicone part matter? Because a) it is flexible so it will fit in any pot, b) the handles don’t get hot, and, c) it is dishwasher safe (<—  highly important for my sanity).

I used the Vebo to make this Lebanese Potato Salad and it made the entire process a breeze. I just quartered my potatoes, placed them in the Vebo, placed the Vebo in a pot of water, and boiled to my heart’s content. Once the spuds were soft I lifted the whole thing up and let the water drain out.

I let the potatoes cool before I cut them into chunks and drizzled them in a refreshing dressing. I tossed in some scallions and chopped mint for a really fresh burst of flavor. SO good and SO easy.

When I first started stalking the Dreamfarm website to drool over their products, I noticed their handy “About” section.

This is always the first place I check out on most websites (especially blogs!) because I like to know who is behind the brilliance I’m enjoying.

The mission of the company is to make useful products that solve problems and eliminate junk out of our lives.

I thought this was such a great idea, because I have a whole lot of junk in my house (okay, mostly in my kitchen) that never gets used and needs to be packed up and shipped off.

Now that I have my Vebo, I moved my old metal strainer to the donation box. Goodbye days of scrubbing stuck on food, forcing the collapsing mechanism open and closed, and letting the inside of my pots get scratched!

Okay, so I know I mentioned other fun gadgets I got to try out and I know you want to know which ones they were and what I thought of them.

Chobs” – Where has this invention been all my life? These have become a permanent fixture on my plastic cutting board. The Chobs go right into the dishwasher along with my board. Done!

Clongs” – Clongs are click-lock tongs that sit up off your bench, you can open and lock your tongs easily with one hand thanks to the clever click-lock button mechanism and they have a clever bend in their handles to sit them up off your counter, which can also be used to rest them on the edge of your pan!

Garject – So stinking brilliant. It’s a heavy duty garlic press that not only presses your garlic (with the peel on), but scrapes the garlic right out into a bowl, then pops the peel out into the trash. Hands free. And dishwasher safe. Dreamfarm, why do you know me so well?

It was in the spirit of this junk-cure mission that I made this recipe!

I took the idea of a traditional junk food (mayonnaise-laden potato salad) and came up with this lightened-up, re-vamped version.

I was inspired by some Lebanese potatoes I had at a Lebanese restaurant here. Fun, right?

Here’s the Lebanese Potato Salad Recipe!
