I’ve always wanted to love the taste of salt and vinegar potato chips. I try and try to eat them, but there’s just way too much acidity for me to eat more than one. I decided if I tried to combine those flavors myself I’d be able to control the balance, and it was a success! I parboiled some halved fingerling potatoes in a mixture of water, vinegar and salt, and then I pan fried them in an iron skillet, finished with more salt. It’s the perfect side dish for grilled meat or sandwiches, or in my case today, the star of a hearty “nicoise-esque” salad. There’s still the tang of vinegar but it compliments the creaminess of the potatoes rather than overpowers them.
