Delicious served warm or at room temperature. A healthier spin than the traditional potato salad.
Serves approximately 8 side dish servings.
Approximately 3/4 pound tiny new red potatoes, quartered
1 medium red onion, cut in wedges
1/4 cup olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons snipped fresh rosemary
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 medium red sweet pepper, diced
3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted (OPTIONAL)
1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F. In a large mixing bowl combine potatoes, diced onion, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, rosemary, garlic, salt, and black pepper. Toss potato mixture to coat well; arrange in a single layer in a greased shallow roasting pan. Roast, uncovered, for 35 to 40 minutes or until potatoes are tender and lightly browned, stirring mixture twice. Transfer roasted potato mixture to a large bowl; set aside.
2. In a small bowl whisk together balsamic vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Pour mixture over roasted potato mixture. Add red pepper pieces; toss gently to coat.
3. Turn potato salad into serving bowl. Sprinkle with pine nuts. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 6 servings.
