Serves 8 (serving size: about 3/4 cup potatoes and about 2 teaspoons dressing)

Here's a new twist on potato salad--a warm dish of golden-brown potato wedges with a creamy-tangy dressing drizzled on top. You can also serve it at room temperature.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place a large heavy baking sheet in oven. Preheat the oven to 400° (keep the baking sheet in oven as it preheats).

Step 2

Combine potatoes, 1 1/2 tablespoons oil, garlic, and thyme in a medium bowl; toss to coat. Arrange the potato mixture on preheated baking sheet, and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes or until browned and tender, turning after 20 minutes.

Step 3

Combine remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, vinegar, shallots, Dijon mustard, and tarragon in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Drizzle dressing over potatoes.

This is my go-to potato salad recipe. Sometimes I leave out the garlic and shallots due to food sensitivities in my friend group, and it's even good that way. It's also perfectly fine with dried thyme and/or tarragon.

Not sure if people are still posting on this recipe, but could somehow help me out?  When I made this, the garlic became too brown and acrid tasting before the potatoes were done.  Has anyone else had this problem, or am I doing something wrong?

These are so great. Maybe the best potato dish I have had. Perfect side for beef.

Very good, though not what I consider a "salad" more of a side dish. But definitely tasty.

This was absolutely delicious! Almost tasted like a German potato salad.

Delicious and easy to make. Even my husband went back for more, and he is not usually a big fan of potato salad.

Excellent alternative to traditional mayo-based potato salad. This will be a new summer staple.

Easy to prep in advance & hold at room temp. Made to recipe, subbing minced basil, thyme & oregano for the tarragon. Served with CL's cornflake crusted halibut.

Very Tasty!! Paired with the KC Barbecue Chicken - was perfect match. The herbs (especially the Tarragon) make it great! Buttery flavor of the Yukon Gold potatoes added richness.
