  • Prep time:20 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$.73


  • 2 pounds medium Yukon gold potatoes (about 6 total)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced (3 Tbsp.)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill


1. Scrub potatoes; place in a pot. Pour in enough cold water to cover by 1 inch. Add a pinch of salt; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until potatoes are just tender, about 20 minutes.

2. Combine mustard, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper and lemon zest in a large bowl. Add juice and stir until blended. Slowly whisk in olive oil.

3. Drain potatoes; set aside until cool enough to handle. Using a sharp knife, remove peels. Cut potatoes into 1-inch cubes; add to bowl with shallot and dill; toss gently. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
