Tomato-Potato Salad with Basil

Ingredients

  • 4 to 6 red potatoes (about 1 pound), cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 to 3 large, ripe tomatoes (enough for 12 slices)
  • 16 fresh basil leaves, half green and half purple basil, if available
  • Balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. Brush potato slices lightly with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on a medium-hot grill and cook, covered, 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until tender.

  2. Slice tomatoes and arrange on plates along with potatoes, tucking basil leaves among them.

  3. Drizzle with vinegar and additional oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
