Potato Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette

Potato Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette

You cannot tear me away from a good potato salad (or any good potato, for that matter). I love the mix of starchy potato with a great dressing. Over the years, I’ve shifted toward vinaigrette dressings for my potato salads because it feels lighter, especially on hot summer evenings. This recipe has been my summer go-to potato salad for several years now. It even catches the attention of those who, and I cannot understand this!, don’t like potato salad.[box type=”info” size=”large”]Make It A Meal!

Serve this salad warm or cold. If you're making it ahead, reserve some vinaigrette and toss the salad with it right before serving.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place the potatoes in a pot with enough cold water to cover them. Bring the potatoes to a boil, and cook until just tender (I use a wooden skewer to test my potatoes — when it slides in and out easily while the potato is still firm, the potatoes are done).
  2. Set the potatoes aside to cool. When they’re cool enough to handle, peel them (see Notes) and cut into 1/4 inch slices or bite-sized cubes.
  3. Make the dressing. In a large serving bowl, whisk the vinegar and mustard together. Slowly add the oil, making a lovely emulsion. Add the onions, shallot, and garlic. Whisk until well-combined. Taste, adjust seasonings, add salt and pepper.
  4. Add the potatoes to the dressing and gently toss to coat. If you’re not serving the salad right away, reserve some of the dressing to add to the salad just before serving.
