Italian Potatoes 

Looking for a little side dish inspiration? From our files comes this one for Italian Potatoes.

Marinated in oil and vinegar (no mayo here), these potatoes get their flavor from lots of herbs and spices.

The recipe, adapted from "River Road Recipes" by the Junior League of Baton Rouge, serves 16, but we cut it in half. 

Instead of using large, red potatoes as called for in the recipe, we substituted small, new potatoes. 

You don't have to use all of the vinaigrette; leftovers can go on a green salad.
