It is not everyday that your local fruit and vegetable shop has an oversupply of one of your favorite ingredients to cook with. This weekend I drove my family to the local fruit shop for the very first time and we managed to get a bag of baby potatoes with skin so smooth and ochre for just 99 cents. On the drive back home I was thinking of how I was going to cook them and I decided on a warm salad. I wanted the skin on on these little babies, so after rummaging in the fridge for a few minutes, I was hit with the right inspiration for this wonderfully wholesome and so easy to make dish.
PAN FRIED POTATO AND WEISSWURST WARM SALAD
