Red Potatoes


Serves 6

  • 1 ¼ pounds baby red potatoes, scrubbed
  • ¼ cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped pitted green or black olives
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil or canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, or to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. Place the potatoes in a pot of water and bring to a boil. Cook 10 to 12 minutes, or just until tender; do not overcook. Check the potatoes periodically by piercing them with the tip of a knife. Drain the potatoes and allow them to cool. Slice them in half, or quarters if they are large.
  2. Combine the potatoes, feta cheese, olives, garlic, scallions, and dill in a large bowl. Drizzle the olive oil on top and toss, then sprinkle with the red wine vinegar and toss again. Adjust the seasoning and serve.
