Garlic and Rosemary Fingerling Potato Salad


I am not ready for summer to come to an end. I refuse to believe that it is almost over. The grill will remain turned on in this house! This fingerling potato salad was something I made on a whim. I bought the potatoes for an entirely different use. Instead, they came in handy when we decided to throw some sausage on the grill. The dressing is light, herby, and tangy all at the same time. Using fingerling potatoes somehow makes it seem more elegant as well. Or maybe that is all in my head!

Using my smaller blender I combined the ingredients while streaming in the olive oil. I chose to season the actual potatoes with the salt and pepper after adding the dressing. Make sure you add seasoning to your specific taste. If the suggested amount of salt is not enough, feel free to use more. I like using a coarse salt such as kosher when working with potatoes. This salad can be served warm or cold. Of course, it is even better the next day!
