Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 pounds baby Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and halved
  • 1/2 pound cipollini onions, peeled
  • 1/8 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 1 cup homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup picholine olives, pitted (2 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 small fennel bulb, very thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, shaved (1 cup)

Directions

  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and garlic, and cook for 2 minutes. Add potatoes, onions, and red-pepper flakes. Cook until onions are golden, about 7 minutes.

  2. Add stock, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook until potatoes and onions are tender, about 10 minutes. Remove potatoes and onions with a slotted spoon. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking liquid.

  3. Combine reserved liquid, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Pour over warm potatoes and onions. Stir in olives, and let cool completely.

  4. Add fennel and parsley, and combine. Season with salt and pepper. Top with Parmesan.

Cook's Note

To ensure maximum flavor, toss potatoes with dressing while they're still warm.
