4 Vidalia onions, thinly sliced
2 cups coarse salt
3 cups apple-cider vinegar
3 pounds red new potatoes
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley
1. Layer the onions and salt in a bowl. Pour over the vinegar. Set aside for 30 minutes to draw out the bitter juices.
2. Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a pot of cold salted water. Cook until fork-tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and cut potatoes in half. Cut each half into 1/4-inch slices to form half-moons.
3. Place the still-warm cut potatoes in a medium-size bowl. Drain the onions from the vinegar, reserving a little vinegar as dressing. Stir in olive oil and flat-leaf parsley.
