Really Simple & Tasty Too #02 – Potatoes

Herb Potato Salad

Makes 4 servings

Hands-on-time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes

Shopping List:

  • 780 gr or 1½ pounds new potatoes [about 15], halved if large
  • 30 gr or ½ cup chopped fresh herbs [flat-leaf parsley, tarragon, and chives]
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 30 ml or 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 15 ml or 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  • 15 ml or 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Fill a large saucepan with 2.5 cm or 1 inch of water and fit with a steamer basket; bring the water to a boil.
  2. Place the potatoes in the basket, cover, and steam until tender, 12 to 14 minutes; drain.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together the herbs, scallions, oil, mustard, vinegar, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  4. Add the cooked potatoes and toss to combine.

Note 1: Tossing the potatoes with the dressing while they are still hot helps them absorb the flavors.

Note 2: Great with grilled salmon.

  1. Sounds delicious. Especially with the addition of salmon. And it sounds so easy that I think I could even do it… if I ever had the inclination.
