Meh...the pancake itself was just ok, possibly just because I added some feta; the tomato salad was a waste of ingredients. The potatoes also didn't read the recipe, because they certainly didn't cook in 6 minutes and even in a well-seasoned, oiled 6" cast-iron skillet they wouldn't turn over without falling apart. I tried broiling the tops in the oven instead but to no avail. The result was edible but it's just as well that I had only enough ingredients for 1/2 a recipe. I needed to use up some potatoes and zucchini and this served the purpose, but I doubt I'd bother with this again.
Potato-Zucchini Skillet Pancakes with Cherry Tomato Salad
These potato pancakes make an ideal base for the tangy olive and tomato salad, and they are a great side for a spring vegetable ragout. For a different twist, and to save prep time, you can serve them with purchased tomato salsa.
