Description

This French Potato Salad is loaded up with fresh herbs – tarragon, parsley, and chives and dressed in the most flavorful Dijon Vinaigrette. It’s vegan, with no mayo, and quick and easy to make. Healthy and light!


Ingredients

 

  • 2 pounds fresh potatoes, sliced ¼-inch thick (little, thin-skinned potatoes work best here)
  • 2 tablespoons of sea salt
  • 2 large garlic cloves

Dijon Vinaigrette:

Fresh Herbs:

  • ¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon, roughly chopped (or sub 1/4 cup dill or basil ribbons)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives (or sub green onions), minced

 


Instructions

Boil the Potatoes: Place the sliced potatoes in a large saucepan cover completely with cold water.  Sprinkle in salt and bring to a boil.  Add the 2 cloves of garlic, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or until potatoes are just tender.

Make the Vinaigrette: While potatoes are simmering, make the vinaigrette by whisking together dijon, oil, vinegar and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.

Assemble: Drain potatoes and garlic.  Place potatoes mostly single layer on a baking sheet to cool.  Mince the cooked garlic and add to the vinaigrette.  Drizzle the vinaigrette evenly over the warm potatoes.  Let sit at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes. 

Serve: Add to a serving bowl gently tossing with the chopped fresh herbs. Serve at room temp or refrigerate and chill.


Notes

This can be made ahead and chilled up to 4 days, but also really delicious served at room temp.
