Red Potato and Tomato Salad
Adapted from Giada De Laurentiis
Serves 4

1 pound baby red potatoes, cubed bite size
1 pint (2 cups) cherry tomatoes, halved
3 scallions, thinly sliced
1/3 cup pitted black olives, halved
1/4 cup chopped fine fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 large lemon, zested
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Add the potatoes to a medium saucepan with enough cold water to cover by at least 2 inches. Set the saucepan over medium heat. Bring the water to a boil and continue boiling until the potatoes are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, add the tomatoes, scallions, olives, parsley, capers, thyme, olive oil, and lemon zest.

Once the potatoes are cooked, drain the potatoes in a colander and allow them to dry for 5 minutes. Then add the potatoes to the rest of the salad, toss gently until all the ingredients are coated and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Refrigerate for 1 hour and gently toss again before serving.
