Author Notes: The potatoes are the root vegetable for this favorite salad, goes well with a roasted chicken or grilled steak. Use your favorite lettuces and grill other vegetables, baby artichokes, zucchini, yellow squash, fennel, baby eggplant to mention a few. Grilled radicchio is a nice addtion. A blend of balsamic or wine vinegars can be used for the dressing and a good olive oil for grilling the vegetables and dressing finishes the salad. I had some baby Dutch potatoes for the last salad that I made. - ibbeachnana
