Warm Basil Potato Salad

Recommended Posts

1.5 lbs. new red potatoes, halved or quartered if using regular size red potatos

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 large garlic clove, minced

pinch crushed red pepper

2 tbsp. white-wine vinegar

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tablespoon (or more to taste) sliced fresh basil leaves

 

Bring the potatoes and enough water to cover to a boil in a large saucepan; reduce the heat and cook until fork-tender, 20-25 minutes. Drain thoroughly.

 

Heat the oil in the saucepan, then add the garlic and crushed red pepper and saute until just fragrant. Stir in the vinegar and salt. Transfer the potatoes to a serving bowl. Drizzle the potatoes with the vinaigrette, add the basil and toss gently to combine.

 

Makes 4 servings

3 points per serving

 

This was a very easy and delicious salad. Personally, I added much more basil than the recipe calls for. When it's fresh, you can't really overdo it.

I made this tonight and it was INCREDIBLE! DH loved it too.

I did modify a bit to make it 2 servings for us and still get in a healthy oil.

 

I used one 14oz can of whole new potatoes that I cut into chunks.

I used 2 tsp olive oil (1 healthyoil per serving)

I used just 2 tsp of white wine vinegar.

I used the same amount of garlic, more red pepper and more basil. I only sprinkled salt.

 

This was very very good. Thanks for a great new keeper Bonnie! :bcbsalute
