2 pounds small new potatoes
2 teaspoons salt, divided
1 medium-size green bell pepper, diced
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 small purple onion, diced
3 tablespoons minced fresh basil

Cook potatoes in boiling water to cover and 1 teaspoon salt 15 to 20 minutes or until tender; drain. Plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain. Peel potatoes, and cut in half. Place potato, bell pepper, and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl.

Process remaining 1 teaspoon salt, vinegar, pepper, and sugar in a blender until smooth. Turn blender on high; add oil in a slow, steady stream. Pour over potato mixture; toss gently to coat.

Cover and chill 8 hours. Drain; serve on a lettuce-lined dish.
