I love potatoes. I grew up in an area that was originally settled by the Irish and potatoes were the main starch that accompanied most of our meals. I tend to think of them as a winter vegetable because they can be stored year round but new baby potatoes are a special summer treat. They are sweet, tender and have very thin skins. New potatoes can be prepared very simply – just steam or boil them and top with a bit of salt and pepper. They also are great in potato salads and don’t require a lot of work to prepare.
For a great mayonnaise-free potato salad that is full of zesty flavour, check out my recipe on Suite 101.com: Baby Red Potato Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette.
Bon Appétit and Enjoy!
