Warm Potato Salad

Feta is such an unappreciated cheese

You can make these as spicy or creamy as you want. More peppers! More cheese! Use the good olives.

Warm Potato Salad

  • 28 ounces new potatoes (or those small multi-colored ones)
  • 4 ounces feta
  • 4-6 serrano or cayenne peppers, cut in large rings
  • 1/3 cup stuffed olives, sliced (we used pimento and garlic ones)
  • olive oil
  • salt/pepper

Boil potatoes until fork tender, about 10 minutes. Grease a large casserole dish and toss in peppers and potatoes. Roast until the peppers are tender and the potatoes are crispy, about 25 minutes. (You can slice them in half first, which we plan to do next time, or leave them whole.) While potatoes are still warm, crumble feta over them and stir. Mix in the olives and adjust seasoning.

    One should make a point to ALWAYS use the good olives! Looks comforting.

    We appreciate Feta . . . and Potatoes! πŸ˜€

  3. Rufus, To be honest, this doesn’t look so tasty in the photo – I hope you don’t mind me saying that – but the recipe is definitely a winner. I can tell by the ingredients. You’re so creative and I love reading your recipes and watching you build your garden (you know, from afar, I live in Boston, so I cannot really see you working ;-)).

    Thanks for the inspiration! Cheers, Elaine

    I love that you crisp up the potatoes in the oven !

  5. Bet this tastes heavenly. There’s nothing in there that I don’t love.

  6. Love the technique, even if I’m not an olive fan…might have to play around with some different flavors here!

    This sounds great, Greg. I think I’d need to tone down the peppers a bit — I know, I’m weak! — but I like the flavor mix here.
