2 1/2 pounds small potatoes, baby Yukon gold or red skinned potatoes

2 ounces, about 3 tablespoons, sliced jarred or canned hot peppers: jalapenos, hot pepper rings, hot cherry peppers, your choice

1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped

4 scallions, chopped

A splash hot pepper juice, from jar or can

3 tablespoons cider or wine vinegar, eyeball it

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, eyeball it

Salt and pepper


  1. Chunk up the potatoes, cutting them into large bite-size pieces and place them in a pot of water. Boil until tender, drain and return back to hot pot to dry them out. Add hot peppers, bell peppers and scallions to potatoes, then dress with a splash of hot pepper juice and vinegar. Toss to combine, then drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil to coat the salad evenly and season with salt and pepper.
