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


  • 1. 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.
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. 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.

    I was skeptical of leaving the potatoes unpeeled, but it turned out perfect! So many awesome textures and flavors in this one.

    Had this delicious, perfect for summer, salad last night. I substituted diced, steamed al dente sweet potato for the russet potatoes. Otherwise, I made it as directed. Loved the variety of vegetables. The dressing was easy to make and seasoned the mix nicely. Definitely a keeper!
