I didn't make any changes to the recipe except to use grape tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes. I'll admit, I was a little skeptical of boiling the potatoes whole and then peeling them after, but it worked like a charm. I loved all the different flavors and textures of this one. Thank you so much to Sue F. for sharing her recipe!
Sicilian Potato Salad
- 10 small russet potatoes, unpeeled
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
- 1/2 pound fresh green beans, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 medium cucumbers, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices
- 1/2 pound cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 large red onion, halved and thinly sliced
- 1 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves, divided
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 4 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
How to cook Sicilian Potato Salad
- Place potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a Dutch oven; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, until tender, 12-15 minutes. Drain; rinse with cold water. Pat dry.
- Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring 1 cup water to a boil. Add beans; cook, uncovered, just until crisp-tender, 3-4 minutes. Drain; immediately drop into ice water. Drain and pat dry.
- Peel and cube potatoes; sprinkle with remaining salt and the pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl. Add beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, onion and 3/4 cup basil leaves. Whisk together oil, vinegar and garlic. Drizzle over vegetables; toss to coat. Sprinkle with remaining basil.
