Servings 4


  • 1.5 pounds little potatoes
  • 1/2 cup (packed) fresh cilantro/parsley blend chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano chopped
  • 1 tablespoon shallot (about half a shallot) chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (crushed red pepper)
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  • Cut little potatoes in half and boil them in a large pot of water. Once they're cooked (about 10-15 minutes), drain and transfer to a bowl and let cool.
  • Meanwhile, chop the cilantro, parsley, oregano, and shallot. Mince the garlic.
  • Once the potatoes have cooled (give it at least 10 minutes), toss all the ingredients together. Potato salad can be served immediately, but I like it give it at least an hour to chill and have the flavors meld together.
