Ingredients
  • 2   pounds 
    small red-skinned potatoes or small Yukon Gold potatoes, washed and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • 3   tablespoons 
    extra-virgin olive oil
  •  
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
1.
Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spread the potatoes on a heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with 1 tsp. kosher salt and several grinds of pepper, and roll them around to evenly coat them with the oil. Spread the potatoes in a single layer, preferably with a cut side down. Roast them until they're tender when pierced with a fork, 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the potatoes. The potatoes should be browned on the sides touching the pan.
2.
Loosen the potatoes from the pan with a thin spatula and transfer them to a large serving bowl to be tossed with the salad ingredients and dressing. They can be tossed while still warm or at room temperature.
