Mediterranean Herb Potato Salad

The duo of oregano and thyme flavors this potato salad, lightly tossed in a vinaigrette instead of heavy (and high-calorie) mayonnaise. Be sure to toss the potatoes in the dressing while they are still warm, so that they can absorb more of the flavor.

Serves 4.


  • 1 pound small red potatoes, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons drained capers


  1. Bring potatoes and water to cover to boil in medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low; simmer 10 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain well.
  2. Mix oil, vinegar, oregano and thyme in large bowl until well blended. Add warm potatoes; toss to coat. Add tomatoes and capers; toss gently to coat.
  3. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
