Roasting potatoes is one of our favorite ways to prepare them, as it's a very hands-off method yet releases so much flavor. In this version, the fingerling potatoes are tossed with olive oil, garlic, fresh oregano, salt, and pepper for a classic presentation. Top with some chopped parsley and chives just before serving for a pop of brightness and color. And here’s how to turn this side dish into a hearty salad: Transfer the roasted potatoes to a large bowl and let cool until just warm. Add 2 cups baby arugula, 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes, and 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar and toss until mixed well.
