Spanish-Smashed Potatoes with Cilantro Sauce Recipe

I was inspired to create this after visiting a great Latin restaurant. The salty potatoes and the bright herbs are great together.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
