  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves torn in small pieces

Step 1

In a large shallow serving dish, combine all the dressing ingredients. Stir to blend, and set aside.

Wash the potatoes but do not peel. Put the potatoes in a large pot, add water to cover, and bring to a boil. Boil until tender, but not overly soft. If using all-purpose potatoes, cut them into 1/4-inch slices; cut red potatoes in half. Place the hot potatoes cut-sides down in the dressing. Add the peas, if desired.

Cover the salad and let sit at room temperature for several hours before serving, turning the potatoes occasionally in the dressing. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
