10th Harvest Week <> July 12 - 18, 1999

note from Tom: I was hoping we'd have cherry tomatoes this week so Debbie was ready with a wonderful recipe, but unfortunately we don't have enough ripe ones yet to please everyone. I hope next week. Instead a recipe for our first potatoes... a cousin of the tomatoes!!!

Macedonian New Potato Salad

1 1/2 lbs. small red potatoes
1/2 C thinly sliced scallions
1/2 C thinly sliced radishes
1/2 C halved olives
6 lettuce leaves
1/2 C crumbled feta cheese
2 oz. chopped dried salami (optional)
salt and pepper

vinaigrette ingredients:
2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
1 tsp. grated lemon zest
2 tsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. dijon mustard
2 tbsp. chopped fresh basil
1/2 tsp. chopped fresh oregano
2 tbsp. chopped parsley
1/4 C olive oil

Steam or cook potatoes until just tender. While potatoes are cooking, prepare dressing: combine all ingredients except oil, then whisk in oil gradually, blending until thoroughly combined. Drain potatoes, cut in half, and toss with dressing. Let it cool. Add scallions, radishes, and olives and toss together. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve on a bed of lettuce leaves and garnish with feta and salami.
