Sicilian flavors abound in this quick Warm Potato Salad that’s the perfect accompaniment to a main dish of Simple Sicilian Cod (recipe is on this site). Warm, waxy potatoes are tossed with olive oil that is flavored with garlic, anchovies and capers. If you’d like a more piquant salad add a little fresh lemon juice or red wine vinegar to the dressing.
The salad can be made ahead, but is best served warm or at room temperature. Reheat the salad in a covered casserole in a warm oven (300 degrees) for 15-20 minutes.
While the potatoes cook and cool, make the dressing. Mash the garlic and anchovies in a medium bowl with a salad fork. Stir in the capers, oregano and olive oil. Set aside.
Cut each potato in half and then cut each half into ¼-inch slices. Place the sliced potatoes in a bowl. Drizzle the dressing over the potatoes and toss gently. Sprinkle with the parsley and season to taste with the salt and pepper. Toss gently and serve immediately.
Makes 6-8 servings.
