Potato Salad with Dijon Dressing Ingredients

Everything that goes into this salad is fresh minus the dressing ingredients but they don’t count. Here’s a full list of ingredients:

  • Red Potatoes
  • Green Onions
  • Parsley
  • Dill
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Red Wine Vinegar
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper

How to Make Potato Salad with Dijon Mustard

  1. Start by boiling the potatoes in hot water. This takes about 20 minutes. Once the potatoes are cooled down, you will cut them in half.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the red wine vinegar and mustard in a large bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil.
  3. Once the potatoes are cooled and cut in half, add to the vinaigrette. Mix in the onions, parsley and dill. And season with salt & pepper.

Notes

  • Start slow on the red wine vinegar. It can be overpowering. Cut it in half to start then if it needs it, add the rest. If you add too much, add a little sugar to cut the bitter taste.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge. This is even better once it’s cooled down.
  • The original recipe from the NY Times used scallions instead of green onions. You can also use celery or other fresh ingredients to take it to the next level.
