    In 3-quart saucepan, heat 1 inch water (salted if desired) to boiling. Add potatoes. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer covered 20 to 25 minutes or until tender.

Expert Tips

  • Fresh cilantro works better in chilled salads, dressings and dips than it does in warm dishes; its delicate flavor disappears quickly when heated.
  • Change the colors of this salad when you use red or yellow bell peppers instead of the green.
