Low Fat Potato Salad with asparagus

(originally made 2/2011)

Needed to use up some red potatoes and the guys wanted theirs smothered with cheese and bacon.   Since I've been eating healthier, I looked for an option that I could vary.    I'm not fond of boiled asparagus, so I decided to roast it with a little extra virgin olive oil.   I microbaked the potatoes, quarted them and added them to a cookie sheet with the asparagus.   Roasted for 16 mins at 400 degrees.  Tossed with the vinaigrette and served.   Very light, and absolutely delicious.    Thanks to Rosie for yet another great recipe!

Low Fat Potato Salad with Asparagus

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  1              pound  baby red potatoes
  1                cup  asparagus tips (I had nice thin asparagus, used tips and stalks)
     1/2                red onion -- sliced
     1/4           cup  fat free -- reduced sodium chicken broth
  2               tbsp  white wine vinegar
  2                tsp  Dijon mustard
  1                tsp  extra-virgin olive oil
  1                     garlic clove -- crushed
                        Fresh ground black pepper to taste

Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil then simmer for 10-12 minutes. Add asparagus tips and simmer for two to three minutes more, until asparagus is bright green and potatoes are tender.
Drain vegetables and allow to cool for a few minutes. Cut potatoes into quarters.
While potatoes and asparagus are cooling, whisk chicken broth, vinegar, mustard, oil and garlic together in a small bowl. Place vegetables in a large bowl. Top with red onion slices. Drizzle dressing over salad. Gently toss to coat. Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled.

Serves 4-6
