From the Test Kitchen

No deep-frying is necessary to create the irresistible crispy potatoes in this salad. Once they’re peeled and cut, the potatoes cook in boiling water just to loosen the starches on their outsides. Those starches caramelize in the hot oven while the potatoes finish cooking with only a small amount of oil, creating a crunchy outer layer and a soft, fluffy interior.
