  • Dilled Potatoes and Asparagus


    This delicate recipe is easily adaptable to the vegetables that are available. Substitute green beans, snow peas or sugar snap peas for the asparagus.


    1. Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan. Add enough cold water to cover and bring to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon salt, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 15 to 18 minutes (a fork should slide into the potato with no resistance). Use a slotted spoon to remove the potatoes from the saucepan and put them into a colander.
    2. Add the asparagus to the boiling water and cook until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Cut the potatoes into quarters or slices.
    3. Stir together the oil, vinegar, horseradish, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add the vegetables and toss to combine; stir in the herbs.
