Last But Not Least... Potato Salad!

Thanks to Google for an image of potato salad

I think it was almost 2 (?) years ago now that I went looking for the best potato salad... and felt like I found it! However, many potato salads have tarragon in them, and mine didn't. Because I know when it comes to recipe there is always going to be one that you like even better than your old tried and true, I never turn away a new version. If you like tarragon or your Mom or Grandmom always used it in their potato salad then I'd try this one. It's an all American version of a very popular side dish. Enjoy.

Potato Salad

3 pounds whole small round potatoes
1/2 c mayonnaise
1/4 c chopped scallions, white and green parts
1 T Dijon mustard
1 T minced fresh tarragon
1 T minced flat-leaf parsley
2-3 T lemon juice
1 t salt
1/4 t freshly ground black pepper

Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and cook until fork tender, about 30 minutes. Drain and cool completely. Slice the potatoes about 1/4-inch thick.

In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, scallions, mustard, tarragon, parsley, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add the potatoes and toss gently to combine. Chill until serving time. Print Friendly and PDF
