No backyard BBQ is complete without a delicious potato salad. Two things make this potato salad recipe spectacular: the quick pickled red onions (so easy!) and fresh herbs. With springtime chive blossoms in full bloom, toss them in for added color!

Fingerling Potato Salad with Pickled Red Onions and Chive Blossoms
Gluten free and vegan
4 side servings

1 small red onion
Seasoned or unseasoned rice vinegar
1 small mesh bag of fingerling potatoes
White vinegar
Good quality extra virgin olive oil
A hearty handful of fresh Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped
A small punch of fresh chives, finely chopped
The flowers from 2 chive blossoms, optional
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Using a mandoline or chef's knife, thinly slice the onion. Cut rings in half and place in a small bowl. Cover with rice vinegar and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Scrub fingerlings under cool water and slice in half lengthwise. Steam (stovetop or in microwave) until tender but not mushy. Transfer to serving bowl and dress, to taste, with white vinegar and olive oil.

Remove onions from liquid and add to bowl. Add chopped herbs and chive blossoms (if using); season to taste with salt and pepper.
