  • Leftover Roasted or Boiled Potatoes
    cut into bite sized chunks

    many you have and gauge the rest of the ingredients accordingly)
  • Cherry Tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • Cucumber, chopped into medium chunks
  • Kalamata Olives, cut in half
  • Basil Pesto (here’s a great pesto recipe!)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Generous Sprinkle of Fresh Parmesan 

… To be clear – this recipe requires chucks of potato – mashed potato just will not do… If left over mashed is what you’ve got, try mixing all ingredients together with an egg, form into patties, and fry up some savory potato pancakes!
