  • Cover potatoes with cold water in a pan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Add 2 teaspoons salt and bring to a boil. Simmer, with lid ajar, until just tender when pierced with a sharp knife, 20-30 minutes, depending on size of potatoes. Drain thoroughly.
  • As soon as potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel and dice. Sprinkle vinegar over and mix in gently.
  • Add pesto, thinning, if necessary, with water or cream, and tomatoes. Mix thoroughly but carefully. Taste for seasoning; add salt, if necessary.  Serve at room temperature or cover and chill.
