Warm Dill Potato Salad

Serves 4; cup per serving


12 ounces red potatoes (about

3 medium), cut into -inch cubes

1 teaspoon cornstarch

½ teaspoon water

2 teaspoons olive oil

½ cup chopped red onion

¼ cup cider vinegar

3 tablespoons honey

½ teaspoon salt

¼ cup chopped fresh watercress

2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh dillweed


Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan. Pour in enough water to cover them by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, or until fork-tender. Drain well in a colander. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool for 10 to 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, put the cornstarch in a cup. Add the water, stirring to dissolve. Set aside.

In a small saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the onion for 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft, stirring frequently. Stir in the vinegar, honey, salt, and cornstarch mixture. Bring to a boil, still over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat and simmer for 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened, stirring frequently.

Gently stir the watercress and dillweed into the cooled potatoes. Pour in the warm onion mixture. Toss gently. Serve warm for peak flavor.
