New Potatoes with Leeks and Fennel


This salad with its tri-colored potato mixture lends itself to an unusual presentation. Try placing portions in cup-shaped red cabbage leaves or radicchio leaves, or select unusual serving bowls.

  • ½ lb. new potatoes, mixture of Yukon gold, Peruvian purple and white
  • 1 ¾ cups chickpeas
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) sliced leeks, about 2 medium, including green ends

  3. Combine soy mayonnaise, lime juice, garlic and thyme leaves, and stir until well combined. Pour over vegetables, and toss to cover well. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
