Great for salads because they hold their shape once cooked, these fingerling potatoes are steamed, which enables them to retain more nutrients than when boiled. The gremolata-inspired dressing (with parsley, lemon, and garlic) adds a twist to this side.
1/2 pound white fingerling potatoes
1/2 pound red fingerling potatoes
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 garlic clove, crushed and minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon capers, drained
How to Make It
Steam potatoes, covered, 12 minutes or until tender. Cover and chill.
Combine juice, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; slowly add oil, stirring well with a whisk. Stir in rind and garlic; let stand 10 minutes. Stir in parsley and capers.
Cut potatoes into quarters; add potatoes to juice mixture, tossing to coat.
