Salt Potatoes With Lemon Herb Butter

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MarthaStewartWanabe

This is a simple, classic salt potato recipe that is a perfect accompaniment to any summer meal--or year-round if you wish. The potatoes are sweet with just the right level of saltiness and combination of herbs. They're also great heated through the next day--that is if there are any left!

We really liked these. I did, however, cut the salt in half because I was scared. The lemon herb butter is great and we all liked these potatoes. We used baby dutch yellow potatoes
