assorted olives

1 tomato, cut into 8 wedges

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

3 tablespoons olive oil

Make dressing: mix mustard and vinegar. Slowly whisk in olive oil until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Boil potatoes for 5 minutes until cooked through but still firm. While potatoes are still hot, toss with 1/2 of dressing.
