These potatoes have a bright dill flavor thanks to the inclusion of lemon juice. A Greek flavor profile makes them a great side dish to simple roasted lamb chops and a mixed greens with feta cheese and a light vinaigrette. The speedy 20 minute preparation time allows for a more complex accompaniment. The thinner skin of new potatoes makes them ideal for steaming. Halving the potatoes cuts the cook time as well. To change the flavor profile without additional cook time, substitute fresh thyme or rosemary. Pair with sliced roasted chicken and a simple green salad for an irresistible plate full of comfort.
