• 20 small potatoes
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1 tbl red wine vinegar
  • a handful cilantro
  • a handful of dill
  • 1 chili pepper
  • 3 cloves of garlic

the other day i picked up baby white potatoes. i love potatoes, but i really don’t make them that often.

to me, potatoes are more of a stew vegetable, something you roast in the winter with herbs and butter. could it be a summer time side? potato salad. whether it be with mayo or not, its a huge summer time side that everyone has on their menu at least once. but i wasn’t in the mood for potato salad and i didn’t think it really would be a good side to salmon.

i wasn’t completely sure what to do with them, but then remembered a post i had seen by noble pig last week. salt and vinegar potatoes with rosemary. like the chips, but with a roasted potato. i took the idea and went with it. awesome idea and it went over really well.

a new staple in my house? yes. looking for something different to make, try this.

smashed potatoes

note: the potatoes might break apart, it’s ok, just go with it.  some of mine broke off into 5 pieces and i just mushed them together and then poured the sauce over.

  1. clean and boil your potatoes till fork tender.
  2. meanwhile in a food processor, pulse all the other ingredients and set aside.
  3. when your potatoes are done, drain and let cool off for a couple minutes. lay out a baking sheet and line with parchment paper. one by one, with the back of a fork, lightly smash the potato. lay them out on your baking sheet and spoon sauce over each potato. about a tsp per potato.
  4. cook at 350 for about 20 minutes.

serve and enjoy! what a great idea right? the potatoes went over great, they were gone with in minutes. this is definitely something i would make again, and again. the best part, use any herb you want, what ever compliments the dish your making.

don’t forget the giveaway!
