Dijon Vinaigrette Potato Salad

Serves 6 to 8

Creamy Yukon Gold potatoes provide a tender base in this light and tangy, European-style alternative to the traditional mayonnaise-based potato salad. Chives, parsley, tarragon and capers add depth of flavor, while olive oil and Dijon mustard pull it all together. A delicious, healthful addition to a summer picnic or barbecue.

  • 3 pounds medium Yukon Gold potatoes

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Method: 

Put the potatoes into a large pot. Add salt and enough water to cover them by 2 inches. Bring the water to a boil over medium high heat, then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain potatoes and set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, prepare the dressing. Whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, caper liquid, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Cut the cooled potatoes into 1/3-inch thick slices and transfer to a large bowl. Add chives, parsley, tarragon, capers and reserved dressing and toss gently to coat. Serve at room temperature.
