How to Prepare:

  • Begin by cutting the new potatoes into bite-sized cubes; you can leave the skin on for added flavor and texture.
  • Spread the potato cubes on an oven tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Lightly spray the potatoes with olive oil and season with a sprinkle of salt.
  • Toss the potatoes to coat them evenly, then bake until they turn a golden-brown hue.
  • Meanwhile, finely slice the red onion.
  • Create a marinade by mixing water, apple cider vinegar, and agave syrup.
  • Pour the marinade over the sliced onion, allowing it to mellow and soften.
  • Let the onion marinate while the potatoes finish baking.
  • Once the potatoes are beautifully roasted, transfer them to a spacious bowl.
  • Introduce the Kalamata olives, capers, artichoke hearts, freshly cubed tomato, drained marinated onion, basil (dried or fresh), a pinch of salt, a dash of pepper, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Enhance the dish by pairing it with a protein or serve it on its own. Delight in the symphony of flavors and textures. Enjoy!
