Recipe Card


  • 1 1/2 pounds small boiling potatoes, washed and quartered
  • 1/2 minced red onion
  • handful of Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoons pimenton (Spanish smoked paprika) or paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 ground coriander
  • kosher salt and black pepper, to taste


  • Step 1

    Put the quartered potatoes in a decent-sized pot and add cold water to cover, and around 2 teaspoons of salt. Place over high heat, cover, and bring to a boil. Uncover, and boil until the potatoes are tender, around 10-15 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Put the shallot and parsley in a medium bowl. Drain the potatoes, and, while they're still hot, add them to the bowl with the shallot and parsley, and give it all a toss. Add the remaining ingredients, toss well, and let sit at room temperature for at least 10 minutes, until the potatoes have absorbed all the oil and vinegar. Serve warm or at room temperature.
