Warm Potato Salad with Goat Cheese

Potatoes absorb flavors better while they are warm, so expect an extra tang from a warm salad like this. Creamy goat cheese adds an extra special touch. For extra flair, make this salad with four potatoes that have been roasted!
  • 4 large baking potatoes -- cleaned and cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 2 T. water
  • 1/4 c. crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/4 c. plain yogurt
  • 2 green onions -- bias-sliced
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 2/3 c. frozen peas -- thawed
  • 2 T. finely diced roasted red pepper

Place the potatoes and water in a large glass dish and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Microwave the container and its contents for 10 minutes and allow the potatoes to rest, covered, for an additional 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the goat cheese, yogurt, onions and seasonings to create a dressing.

Remove the plastic wrap from the bowl and drain away any excess water. Toss the peas and red pepper with the potatoes and mix in the dressing until everything is well-coated. Serve warm.
