Italian Potato Salad

Even though the City had been under a winter storm watch for most of Friday evening and early Saturday morning, the Greenmarket had a surprisingly strong complement of farmstands when I arrived there yesterday afternoon. I remarked to one of my usual vendors that I was surprised to see her there, to which she replied that “It would take a natural catastrophe on the order of last year’s Hurricane Irene to keep us away”.

I had bought some mixed heirloom potatoes with the intention of doing a roasted vegetable plate for lunch, but that idea was quickly shelved when I happened upon this post at Green Kitchen Stories. Although cherry tomatoes and basil won’t make their appearance for several more months, all it took was a couple of substitutions to get past that roadblock.

This is a winter version that, in its own way, is just as satisfying.
