  • 1 lb. baby golden potatoes each cut into bite size chunks
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 1 lb. smoked beef sausage sliced
  • 1 medium sweet onion chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 cups arugula or your favorite green mix
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese Parmesan or cheddar, whichever you prefer


  • Place potatoes, salt and enough water to cover the cut potatoes, in a medium pot.
    Bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Approximately 10 minutes.
  • Drain potatoes and place in a single layer on a large baking sheet to allow the potatoes to cool completely and quickly, about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the sliced sausage in a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often, until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels if necessary.
    Leave residual drippings in the skillet.
  • After potatoes have cooled, place potatoes in the hot drippings, stirring occasionally until potatoes are brown and crisp, 10-15 minutes.
  • Add onions to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally until tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Add vinegar and cook an additional 40 seconds.
  • Stir in sausage and arugula and cook. Stir until arugula is wilted, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Transfer to a platter, top with cheese and serve.
