           DRESSING as follows
    3/4 c  Extra virgin olive oil
      6 tb Red wine vinegar
      1 tb Sugar
    1/4 c  Fresh parsley; minced

     Look for "small new potatoes" with purple-red skins, and fewer deep
     Boil rinsed potatoes in plenty of lightly salted water, about 15
  minutes, or until just tender.  Drain and set aside.
     Cut the asparagus and carrots to size before cooking.  Steam each
  vegetable separately (a dente).
   -Asparagus (1-1/2 to 2-inch lengths) 1-2 minutes.
   -Carrots (1/4-1/3-inch thick) 5 minutes.
     Put the vegetables in a bowl and chill:  to stop cooking and to
  cool the potatoes enough so that they can be handled without
  crumbling.  Slice the red potatoes 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Prepare the
  dressing in a blender, food processor, or hand-held grinder.  Season
  with salt and freshly ground pepper.  Drizzle on the salad and toss
  gently to coat. Fold in the tender shallot (or scallions;
  spring-green onions, sweet onion). Cover and chill (about 2 hours).
  Lettuce (optional).
  Cooksnote  - substitute fresh rosemary for the basil.  Use fresh herbs

  : Here's an eye-appealing potato salad from Wisconsin.  Asparagus is
       grown there.
