Ingredients

Salad

  • 5 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 1/2 lb unpeeled Red new potatoes, cut into 3/4-inch pieces (about 8 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped cucumber (1 medium)
  • 1 cup chopped yellow bell pepper (1 medium)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery (1 medium stalk)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions (4 medium)

Dressing

  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Directions

  • 1
    In 4-quart saucepan, heat water and 2 teaspoons salt to boiling. Add potatoes; return to boiling. Cook uncovered 5 to 8 minutes or just until tender.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix dressing ingredients; set aside.
  • 3
    Drain potatoes. Add potatoes and remaining salad ingredients to dressing; toss to coat. Cover; refrigerate 3 hours to blend flavors.

  • If you like tomatoes, add 2 medium tomatoes, chopped, to the mix.
  • You can make this salad up to 24 hours ahead, but the olive oil will solidify a bit so you'll have to let it stand and then stir it right before serving.
