2 cups (1/2-inch) diced baking potato
1 teaspoon butter or stick margarine
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dash of black pepper


Place the diced potato in a medium saucepan, and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes; drain and cool.

Heat the butter and olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes, and cook for 10 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown. Add the chopped mint and remaining ingredients, and toss to coat.
