Marinated Purple Potatoes

The intense, eye-catching color of this salad really sets it apart from the roast potatoes that is more typically served. It used to be more difficult to find purple potatoes, but they seem to be appearing more frequently at local grocery stores. Purple potatoes are medium-sized, oval and have an assertive, earthy flavor.

What to buy: Chile caribe is a very hot yellow chile that originates in the Caribbean. If you can’t find it, you can substitute habanero chiles or just leave it out.
