A delicious combination of ingredients, this crispy smashed potato salad offered a big range of flavor in every bite. Not only was it delicious, it was visually appealing too.
Between its looks and flavor, we found it difficult to not keep spooning more onto our plates. From the crispy potatoes, the salty pancetta, and the very slightly sweet dressing, it was the perfect accompaniment to our grilled chicken and salad.
I skimped a little on the capers because they’re not my favorite, but they offered some additional briny contrast that was really nice. My main caution would be to keep a close eye on the potatoes and scallions as they broil to avoid quickly going from browned and crisp to charred and unappealing. I avoided that and I’ll definitely be making this again.
