New Potatoes are wonderful, typical of the summer and great steamed, boiled or roasted. You can make great salads with them. This salad has tons of different kinds of herbs and a great mustard dressing, transforming these potatoes into something special.
I used the herbs I had in my garden (chives, mint, coriander, oregano, thyme) but others work great too (basil, parsley etc). And for the onion choose any kind of fresh summer onion (green onions, scallions etc).
•INGREDIENTS• (for 4 as a side)
→ about 800 gr new potatoes
→ 1 big bunch of mixed herbs (yields 1/2 cup after chopping)
→ 1 small red onion or other summer variety
for the dressing:
→1 tbls dijon mustard
→juice of 1/2 lemon
→4 tbls extra virgin olive oil
→1 tsp honey
→salt & pepper
Put a pot of water to boil. Wash the potatoes and cut them in 2/3 inch pieces. When water is boiling, add some coarse salt and the potatoes. They should be done after 15 minutes, but test them with a fork or knife (careful not too overcook them, otherwise they will become mushy).
Prepare the dressing in a jar and shake well. Chop the onion super thinly and wash and chop the herbs. Add part of the dressing to the onion and herbs and let it sit/marinate for couple minutes while the potatoes are cooking.
Drain the potatoes, and pass under cold water to cool down. Cut them in slices and add to the herbs and onion mix. Mix well and adjust the dressing if you need more.
I served mine slightly cool. It’s delicious!
