Fast and Easy Recipe For French Fingerling Potato Salad

Summer of Salads: French Fingerling Potato Salad

Move over, classic and German potato salad. I like you both a lot, really, but I've found a new Summer obsession, and it's called French potato salad. How do I love thee, French potato salad? Let me count the ways: You're a class act, with your dainty fingerling potatoes and your sherry vinaigrette. You can satisfy even the fiercest of mayonnaise-dressing haters, and you're lighter on the calories. You can be made in well under 30 minutes and taste delicious warm or cold, made on the spot or in advance. You're portable and work well with any lunchbox sandwich, especially the hearty bistro kind (or at a movie in the park picnic). Oh, and you're naturally gluten free, sugar free, and vegan, so you please everybody. And no, you're not too good to be true. Seeing is believing; just read more.

Fast & Easy Recipe for French Fingerling Potato Salad

Ingredients

  1. 2-1/2 pounds fingerling or small new potatoes, halved (quartered if large)
  2. Coarse salt and ground pepper
  3. 1/4 cup olive oil
  4. 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  5. 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  6. 1 small shallot, minced (2 tablespoons)
  7. 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  8. 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  9. 1/4 small red onion, sliced

Directions

  1. Place potatoes in a large pot; cover with cold water by 1 inch and season generously with salt. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Run under cold water to cool slightly, then drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together oil, mustard, vinegar, shallot, parsley, and thyme; season with salt and pepper. Add potatoes and onion and toss to combine. Serve at room temperature. (To store, refrigerate, up to overnight.)

Makes 6 servings.

I've made this salad several times and folks always rave about it.  It's great with grilled fish and green beans or cold roasted chicken with warm pan sauce.   Simple ingredients, easy to make, big wow factor.      @carmabelle Use sherry cooking wine instead of balsamic.  I think you'll like that even more.

This looks quite delicious; potato salad is such a nice summery staple to have as a side for lunch or dinner. I also like the fresh fairly minimal ingredients in this recipe.
