Precious Potato Salad

This salad showcases flavorful tiny new potatoes, available at farmers' markets. They're served on mâche, or lamb's lettuce; to clean it, trim the roots, keeping the heads intact, and rinse well.

Italian white truffle oil adds a rich, luxurious flavor to the salad, though you can replace it with one extra tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil.
