Ingredients:

  • 1 tbs Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbs dried thyme
  • salt & pepper to taste

Whisk the olive oil, red wine vinegar, mustard, thyme, salt and pepper in a small bowl and set aside.

Wash and then cut the potatoes in half.  Steam them potatoes until just tender when you put a fork into them.  Run under cold water and then set aside until they are cool.  Transfer to a large bowl.  Add the bacon, capers, and onion to the bowl, pour over the dressing and toss.

Garden Salad

  • Gourmet lettuce
  • Cherry tomatoes
