This simple side dish is easy to make and full of flavor.

Ingredients:

Kosher salt
4 pounds baby Yukon Gold potatoes
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
Freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

  1. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil; add 3 tablespoons salt to water and stir to dissolve.
  2. With a skewer, pierce each potato 3 times. Carefully add potatoes to water; and return water to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer potatoes for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain potatoes and then return to pot. Set heat to low, and stir potatoes for 1 to 2 minutes to dry them out. Remove from heat and allow potatoes to cool.
