Small new potatoes are boiled and then dressed with a bit of olive oil, garlic, and some oregano. The tender potatoes are lightly crushed, which gives them a rustic look and helps the flavors infuse into the potatoes a little more. This recipe is super simple and makes a great side-dish for some grilled meat. You can serve these potatoes hot or try them cold tossed with some greens for a simple and delicious salad that is perfect for a picnic or warm summer gathering.


  • small new potatoes
  • 1 cup oregano (if they have dried leaves, other than a jar, the result is much better!)
  • 2 cups olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • salt
  • pepper

    1. Wash the potatoes well and place them in a saucepan of salted water. Cook until tender.
    2. Meanwhile peel the garlic, chop finely. Pour the olive oil in a pan and add the garlic. Turn off the heat as soon as the garlic starts to fry (watch closely so that it does not burn).
    3. Drain the potatoes after cooking, press them slightly to crush them a little bit. And add them to the olive oil to saute a little. Sprinkle with oregano and season with pepper. Cover and stir in the aromas to serve.
