People may think a potato is a potato, but that simply is not the case.
Some are perfect for baking, some are sensational fried, and some work wonderfully sliced, diced, or mashed. Red potatoes are full of flavor, and can be the star of a dish on their own. Bring them to the forefront of your menu in a sensational salad side dish like Dilled Potato Salad with Feta, where the crunch of the fresh vegetables is complemented by the tart creaminess of the feta cheese. Or try pairing red potatoes with some other sensational spuds in a dish like Roasted Potato-and-Okra Salad, blending the nutty tastes of roasted potatoes with the crisp, tart flavors of a Lemon-Thyme Vinaigrette.
You'll be seeing red—red potatoes that is—when you bring a bowl of Warm Lentil-and-Potato Salad to the table. Firm, green French lentils, and buttery, toasty, roasted potatoes, combine with the crisp crunch and savory, smoky flavors of bacon to create a side-dish delight. You'll want this on the lunch table, but it will be so delicious you may consider making it every day. So learn what potato bakes best, and let red potatoes do their duty in some of your favorite recipes.
