This really suited my taste, so how could I possibly pass this up? Very flavorful, even with only 1 tablespoon oil and low-fat feta. I recommend using the best quality sun-dried tomatoes for this salad, and I prefer not to soften them with boiling water as I like the chewy texture. I used baby white potatoes as that was what I had on hand. Next time, I might add a bit more potato, maybe 1 1/2 lbs and keep everything else the same as per review. Many thanks for this great recipe!
This was really lovely and summery. I used Vivaldi new potatoes, and sundreied tomatoes in oil, as that's what I had in. I also stirred in some salad leaves (baby spinach, rocket and lambs leaf lettuce), as they needed using! I served this still very slightly warm. It was so nice I've made some more to bring to work for myn lunch today.
