Potatoes in Sauce Gribiche

This recipe may highlight potatoes but truth be told, Sauce Gribiche (pronounce GREE-BEESH) can be put on pretty much any protein, starch or vegetable you happen to be serving.  Here we take a simple fingerling potato, toss in this devilishly simple sauce and voila!  Heaven. 

The fingerlings can be made a few different ways.  Slice them lengthwise and roast them on a baking sheet at 400° for 25-30 minutes until rich and golden; or pick up a 1.5 lb. bag of “The Little Potato Company” microwavable fingerlings and in 5 minutes have the perfect side dish.


1 ½ lbs Fingerling Potatoes
