Roasted Potato Salad With Arugula

Not Just For Summer Picnics

We usually think of a potato salad served cold and in the summer. But by roasting the potatoes and serving them still slightly warm as the companion to peppery arugula and a zingy lemon vinaigrette, a potato salad can be something akin to elegant.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375° F.
  2. Scrub the potatoes but do not peel. Using a paring knife, remove any marks or bruises. Toss the potatoes with 2 tablespoons olive oil and spread on a rimmed sheet pan.
  3. Bake for about 45 minutes until the potatoes are completely tender and the skin has begun to shrivel. Remove from the oven and let cool a bit but not completely. While the potatoes are cooling, make the vinaigrette.
  4. In a small bowl combine the lemon juice, red wine vinegar, salt, mustard and several grinds of black pepper. Use a fork to stir until the salt has dissolved and the mustard is mixed. Add 5 tablespoons olive oil and continue whisking until the vinaigrette has emulsified. Pour over the slightly warm potatoes and toss.
  5. In a serving bowl place a mound of baby arugula or larger leaves that have been torn into bite-sized pieces. Arrange the potatoes on top, drizzling any leftover dressing over the arugula leaves.
  6. Serve immediately.
