Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/4 pounds small white or red new potatoes
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
Salt
Ground black pepper
3 medium tomatoes, cored and cut into large chunks
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
8 slices center-cut bacon
12 cups loosely packed romaine lettuce or other salad greens (torn into pieces)

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese made with 2 percent milk


Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.


Cut larger potatoes into quarters and smaller ones into halves.


Place potatoes in a zip-top bag with 1 tablespoon olive oil and seal the bag.


Shake and toss the bag until potatoes are evenly coated.


Pour potatoes onto a baking sheet; add salt and pepper to taste.


Roast, turning once, about 30 minutes, until potatoes are golden.


Place tomato chunks in a large bowl.


To make dressing, whisk together remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, balsamic vinegar and basil in a small bowl.


If desired, season with salt and pepper.


Pour about one-fourth of dressing over the tomatoes and set aside.


In a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat, cook bacon until brown and crispy.


Drain bacon on paper towels, then crumble it.


Divide roasted potatoes among four serving plates. Add salad greens to bowl with tomatoes; add remaining dressing and toss to combine.


Arrange salad over potatoes.


Top with bacon and sprinkle with mozzarella.
