No-Mayo Potato Salad

Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 1 pound small red potatoes, skins on

Dressing

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon mustard of your choice
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup fresh herbs, such as cilantro, parsley, chives,
  • tarragon, oregano, basil, thyme, finely chopped

Seasoned cook: Make this a one meal dish by adding cooked green beans, peas, and eggs, meat or shrimp on a bed of lettuce. Unlike other potatoes, red potatoes tend to hold their skins intact after steaming.


Method

  • Using a basket, steam potatoes 15 minutes at full boil until a knife point goes in easily but still firm. Remove from pot and let cool enough to handle. Then cut into ½-inch cubes. Place in a bowl.
  • Add dressing, toss and refrigerate up to 24 hours for the flavors to meld together.
  • Add pepper to taste and serve.
