A great summer dish made with whole new potatoes.
- 2 lbs small new potatoes
- 1 ½ qt boiling salted water
- ¼ c strained cooking liquid
- ¼ c chopped shallots or onions
- 1 tbsp wine vinegar
- 1 tsp Dill Weed
- 1 tsp English Prime Rib Rub
- 1 to 2 T olive or vegetable oil
Bring water to a boil. Add 1 tsp salt. Wash and scrub potatoes. Peel a stripe around center of each potato. Place in boiling water; cook until fork tender (about 8-12 minutes). Drain, reserving ¼ C strained liquid. Return potatoes to pan, cover and let dry about 2 minutes.
Combine the cooking liquid, shallots or onions, wine vinegar, English Prime Rib Rub and Dill Weed. Whisk. Place potatoes in a roomy bowl, cover with dressing and stir gently. Let stand 10 minutes, then add 1 or 2 T of olive or vegetable oil. Toss and serve. The flavor is great warm or chilled.
