Yield: 4 servings

1 pound fingerling potatoes, cut into even-size pieces
½ pint grape tomatoes
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Mint Gremolata Dressing
3 ounces goat cheese (Place goat cheese in the freezer before starting the recipe for easier crumbling)

Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Season generously with salt. Add potatoes to water and cook 7–9 minutes until a fork pierces skin easily. Drain well.

Preheat oven to 425°.

Toss potatoes and tomatoes with garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Place on sheet pan and roast 12–15 minutes until nicely caramelized.

Toss warm vegetables and dressing together in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Crumble goat cheese over the top and serve immediately.
