Potato Salad Alternative

We were grilling dinner this past weekend and needed a carby side. We are sick of rice, baked potatoes, etc… so we decided on this really great warm potato salad recipe we have made a couple of times. It’s a perfect side dish for the spring and I thought it was about time to share with you…
Roasted Fingerling Potato Salad
from Bon Appetit, June, 2010

2 Tbs plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil plus additional for brushing
1 1/2 lb 1-inch-diameter fingerling potatoes, halved lengthwise
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 C fresh Italian parsley leaves
2 Tbs fresh tarragon leaves
1 1/2 Tbs red wine vinegar
1 Tbs coarse-grained Dijon mustard
2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled, chopped

Position rack in bottom third of oven and preheat to 400°F. Brush heavy large rimmed baking sheet with oil. Place potatoes and 2 tablespoons oil in large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; toss. Arrange potatoes, cut side down, on prepared baking sheet. Roast until potatoes are brown on cut side, about 23 minutes. Using tongs, turn potatoes over. Roast until crisp, deep golden, and tender, about 12 minutes longer. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Stir green onions, parsley, tarragon, vinegar, mustard, and 2 teaspoons oil in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer potatoes to dish. Spoon chopped eggs and herb salad over.
