Warm French Potato Salad

Warm French Potato Salad

Dressing the potatoes while warm helps them to soak up the tangy vinaigrette. A sprinkle of fresh herbs adds color and flavor.

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)


  • 11 none medium red potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon


Cut each potato in half lengthwise; quarter each potato half. Steam potatoes, covered, 13 to 15 minutes or until tender.

While potatoes cook, combine oil and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl; stir well. Drain potatoes. Add warm potatoes to bowl; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with parsley, chives, and tarragon just before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.
