Warm Potato + Pea Tendril Salad with Maple Tahini Dressing ~ I think most of us have those special things that we always have to get when we go to certain places that we love to frequent. That certain cup of coffee done just the way you like, or that same scoop of ice cream we get every time we are at our favorite ice cream shop, or even that perfectly fitted shirt that we have to go back and buy one in every color. Doesn’t everyone do this? Sure I am adventurous and enjoy trying new things, but there’s a “list” of favorites that I usually don’t stray from. Part of this list happens to be some of those items that I absolutely can’t resist picking up when going to the farmers market. Fresh and juicy strawberries –– make me want to scoop up at least 3 or 4 baskets. Perfectly ripe tomatoes –– you know I am coming home with a mound of those. Earthy sweet potatoes –– can be cooked so many ways, I have to grab at least a few of those. But there is a special place in my heart (and stomach) for the gorgeously-Mother-Nature-curled pea tendrils –– they are just so lovely. A bunch of these will last for a good week, if treated right, and they can be used for many wonderful dishes. Top your tacos with them, quickly saute them with some olive oil, salt, and pepper, or add them into a salad such as this one. Slightly sweet pea tendrils pair well with roasted potatoes and feta cheese, but what really makes this salad ah-mazing? The dressing –– do yourself a favor and make it, add it to this salad, and dive on in.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop potatoes into 1" pieces and place onto a cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with garlic, salt, and pepper. Using a large spoon (or hands) mix together until potatoes are evenly coated and spread out evenly onto the pan. Roast for 25-30 minutes or until fork tender, giving a stir at the 15 minute mark. Once finished roasting, remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly.
