Expert Tips

Any new potato (about 1 1/4 inches in diameter) can be used in place of the small red potatoes.

Regular balsamic vinegar can be used in place of the white balsamic vinegar; the dressing will have a darker color.

Spoon this flavorful potato salad in a decorative serving bowl and garnish with sprigs of fresh marjoram.
