Side Suggestions: Provencal Potato Salad
Wash and scrub 4 small red potatoes. Place in a pot and fill with water. Cover and place over high heat. Once water starts boiling, reduce to low and simmer potatoes for 20-30 minutes, until soft when pricked with a fork. While potatoes are cooking, mix together 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar, 4 teaspoons olive oil, 2 teaspoons water, ¼ teaspoon salt, and freshly ground pepper to taste. When potatoes are cooked, let cool just slightly and then slice into smaller pieces. Pour sauce over potatoes while still warm. Mix in ¼ cup chopped chives and 1 cup baby spinach just before serving.
