Fantastic! First let me say DH and I really enjoyed the light mustard vinaigrette and secondly the potatoes cooked perfectly fallowing the microwave directions. The recipe cut down to sever two without a hassle. Thanks for the tasty change of pace that will be enjoyed again.

This was a lovely change from our normal potatoes. I also had to use small white potatoes because there weren't any red ones at our supermarket this week. I used my countertop electric steamer to steam the potatoes and then followed the directions as written. I am having to follow a low fat eating plan and so it was great to get so much taste without going nuts with the oil. My husband commented that they were good too and that is a rare thing for a non fried vegetable. Made for your win in the week 7 football pool.

You were right on the money on the time you said for the microwave. I was looking for recipes to use my fresh dill from my aerogrow garden when I found this one. I used the rice wine vinegar and 1 teaspoon of fresh dill. Very easy and fast to make. Made for *Healthy Choices ABC 2008 * game
