This French-style potato salad uses a bright, tangy vinaigrette with plenty of fresh herbs to complement the tender potatoes. I love this light, fresh this potato salad! (Gluten-Free, Vegan, Whole30)

Ingredients

FOR THE POTATO SALAD:

  • 1 lb. small red potatoes, diced or quartered into evenly-sized pieces
  • 1 lb. small yellow potatoes, diced or quartered into evenly-sized pieces
  • 2 green onions, sliced

FOR THE HERB DRESSING:

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 3 Tbsp. white wine or rice vinegar
  • 1/21 tsp. salt
  • 1/21 tsp. pepper
  • 4 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 34 Tbsp. minced fresh dill
  • 2 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley

Instructions

FOR THE POTATO SALAD:

  1. Place diced potatoes into a pot. Pour water over the potatoes, until the water is 1″ above the potatoes.
  2. Add 1/2 tsp. salt to the water and cover with a lid.
  3. Bring the water to a boil and boil potatoes 12-15 minutes, or until potatoes are still slightly firm but tender. You don’t want them crunchy by any means but also don’t want them soft enough to fall apart or mash. A fork should easily pierce the potatoes (I recommend pulling a potato out of the water to test it for best results.)
  4. Drain the potatoes, letting them cool slightly. Add green onions and dressing. Stir with a silicone spatula (it’s more flexible and less likely to crush the potatoes) to coat. Let potatoes sit for 10-15 minutes in the dressing to absorb the rest of the dressing.
  5. Serve warm or room temperature for best results. (Cold also tastes great!)

FOR THE HERB DRESSING:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper.
  2. Continue whisking as you slowly drizzle in the olive oil (going slowly will help your dressing emulsify/blend better!).
  3. Then, add fresh herbs and stir to combine.
