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.

Instructions

  1. 1Boil potatoes until tender, but firm, about 20 minutes. Drain.
  2. 2Warm the oil over medium heat and sauté onion and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the vinegar and pour mixture over the warm potatoes. Toss with salt, pepper and parsley. Add chile caribe, if using, and mix well. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Sprinkle with cheese before serving.
