Yid.Dish: Roasted Potato Salad

purple_potato_salad3.jpg

Tonight I made myself a very simple, and surprisingly wonderful dinner: roasted potatoes with cherry tomatoes, cucumber, chives and parsley in a lemon olive-oil vinaigrette. It was so simple, so fast – and the contrast of the warm, creamy potatoes with the crisp cucumber and acidic tomatoes was perfect for a summer evening. I finished off my meal with a few slices of locally grown (and very tasty) watermelon.

The meal was a reminder to me about the beauty of eating fresh, local produce. And while I know it’s not the most well-balanced meal, I was eating alone while I cleaned out my apartment before moving from Chicago to the East Coast.

In less than two weeks (after Hazon’s New York Jewish Environmental Bike Ride), I am starting off my adventures at Adamah, and my first step into the world of organic farming. I have spent the last three years sitting at a desk job in the city, so I am especially excited to work outside and to connect with the land.

Over the next few months, you’ll hear from me with stories from the farm – everything from recipes to what we’re growing and harvesting, and of course, adventures in pickling. I look forward to sharing my experiences

Now, for that Roasted Potato Salad
amounts don’t really matter much here, so have fun and experiment

- A handful of new or confetti potatoes (the purples are especially beautiful), coated in a bowl with olive oil, fresh lemon juice, coarse salt and pepper, and roasted on a baking sheet for 20-25 minutes in the oven or toaster oven at 350 degrees

- 1/2 pound (or so) cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters – place them in the bowl that you used for the potatoes, and add a bit of extra salt.

- Chop chives and parsley (or any other fresh herbs you might have) and add them to the tomatoes.
- A couple small cucumbers (kirbys are great for this), chopped

When the potatoes are easy to cut with a fork, they are done. Toss them with the fresh veggies, adjust the seasoning (I love red pepper flakes in the dressing), and enjoy!

    An easy way to up the protein content, and make it more well balanced, is to add a cup of defrosted Cascadian Farms Organic sweet peas. The amino acids in the peas and potatoes complement each other nicely, and the peas add Vitamin A, B-vitamins (including B-12), and even some calcium. To hold it together, I sometimes add Vegenaise.
