Awesome Garlic Vinaigrette Potatoes
By Michelle London innkeeperchef
This versatile dish will impress! I recently served these as a side dish alongside herb and goat cheese stuffed chicken breasts at a formal sit down dinner, but they would be equally at home served family style, on a lunch or brunch buffet, or as a picnic or barbecue dish. They're awesome served warm, at room temp, or chilled.
