Spicy cherry tomato salad with potato garnish

Spicy cherry tomato salad with potato garnish

The potatoes are washed and boiled "in their skins".

While the potatoes are boiling, wash the cherry tomatoes, wipe and halve.

Cut the basil leaves and separate the parsley leaves, after they have been washed under a gentle stream of water.

Peel the garlic cloves, wash, wipe and grate, or grind lightly.

When the potatoes are cooked, remove them from the hot water, leave to cool, then peel and cut into slices, at least 1 cm thick.

Lightly fry the potato slices in a little oil on both sides, just enough to get a creamy taste and change color.

For the salad, sprinkle the grated garlic and the chopped basil over the halved cherry tomatoes, then season with: salt, pepper and oregano. Finally pour the olive oil and mix the ingredients lightly.

Leave the salad for at least 15 minutes to soak in the added spices, after which it can be served with previously prepared potato slices and sprinkled with chopped parsley.
