Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes
  • 1 yellow pepper, cored, seeded and coarsely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 red pepper, cored, seeded and coarsely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/3 cup Basil Pesto, recipe follows
  • Salt and pepper
Basil Pesto:
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 cups fresh basil leaves, loosely packed
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Put the potatoes in a large steamer basket over boiling water and steam for 20 minutes, or until they are cooked though, but the skins remain intact. Set them aside until they are cool enough to handle. Quarter the potatoes and put them in a large bowl. Add the peppers and the pesto and toss gently to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and chill.

Basil Pesto:

Toast the pine nuts in a dry pan over a medium heat until fragrant and golden brown, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes. In a food processor, process the pine nuts and the garlic until minced. Add the basil, Parmesan cheese and lemon juice and process until finely minced. With processor on, slowly pour the oil down the food chute. Process until well blended. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Cook's Note

This recipe leaves you with extra pesto. I like to freeze leftovers in an ice cube tray.
