Potato salad with tomatoes and fresh basilPosted: August 31, 2011
My sister made this potato salad years ago and it is my favorite potato salad ever. I don’t care for mayonnaise so that is partially why. But also because this is a delicious salad.
Potato salad with tomatoes and fresh basil
1 pound new potatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 pound ripes tomatoes (2 large) cut into chunks (including juice)
1/4 cup minced fresh basil
1 Tbsp. olive oil
pinch of salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
Steam the potatoes over boiling water until tender, 12 to 14 minutes. Drain, pat dry and place in a large bowl.
Add the tomatoes, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper and toss well to combine. Serve warm or slightly chilled.
