Potato Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Kalamata Olives

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 20-45 minutes, depending on method

Chilling time: 24 hours

Yield: 5 cups

Ingredients

2 pounds unpeeled new potatoes or unpleeled baking potatoes, preferably with red, blue, or purple flesh

1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped or julienned

1/2 cup thinly sliced red onions or chopped scallions (including white and green parts)

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, preferably unfiltered

3 tablespoons red or white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon sugar

1–2 garlic cloves, pushed through a garlic press

1/2 teaspoon powdered mustard or 1 teaspoon prepared mustard

1/2 cup pitted and chopped kalamata olives

1/3 cup chopped prosciutto or diced cooked bacon (optional)

Directions

Steam or microwave the potatoes in their skins until they are tender. Cool and store in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Quarter the chilled potatoes, then cut into 1/4-inch slices and place in a large mixing bowl. Do not remove the skins. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over the potatoes. Toss to coat evenly. Serve cold or at room temperature.

From Booklist

For some, locavorism isn’t enough. Farmed food of any sort lacks the full panoply of flavors and textures that wild foods bring to the table. Moreover, wild foods offer some nutritional advantages and may be richer in some vitamins and minerals than their cultivated cousins. Some laboratory studies have concluded that medical benefits, including protection from cancer cells, can be found in vegetables such as brussels sprouts. Despite her impassioned advocacy for eating foods culled from woodlands and creek beds, Robinson is not so doctrinaire as to believe that everyone has the time or the access to such foods. So she offers a guide to buying the best, most flavorful produce in supermarkets. Robinson guides readers through ranks of greens, explaining how to judge lettuces by color and why to select loose spinach rather than the bagged variety. Such guides can benefit grocery shoppers who lack the means of foraging their dinners. --Mark Knoblauch

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I am an investigative journalist who specializes in science and health. In my most recent books, I have mined the scientific literature for information about how we've diminished the nutrient content of our diet, when and why we did it, and how we can recoup the losses by making more informed choices at the supermarket, farmers market, and in seed catalogs. My latest book, Eating on the Wild Side, a New York Times bestseller, explains how to select the most delicious and nutritious varieties of fruits and vegetables currently available. I live on Vashon Island, an island a short ferry ride from Seattle, where I have a demonstration garden showcasing some of the most stellar varieties.
