Talked with my dad this weekend, seems his potato hills are producing a bumper crop, unlike his green beans which my mom says have been ravished by bunnies – she emphasized it was a large brood of bunnies, not full grown rabbits, who ate every bean down to about 3 inches of stalk. So in honor of his bumper crop of potatoes, thought I’d post a quick and easy recipe. I’m just walking right on by the whole green bean debacle and hope my mom did not see JeffW’s excellent green bean salad.
- 6 small red potatoes, scrubbed & quartered
- 1 cup Italian dressing (good quality gives the best results)
- salt & pepper to taste
- 2 slices thick cut bacon, cooked & crumbled
- 2 tbsp fresh chopped chives
In saucepan boil potatoes until tender (about 20 minutes). Drain well. Toss with remaining ingredients, serve hot or chilled.
