French Potato Salad Recipe


– 1/3 a shallot, finely diced – 1 large clove of garlic, minced – 1/2 cup olive oil – 1/4 cup champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar – 1 tsp dijon mustard – freshly ground salt and pepper


First, create the vinaigrette. To a measuring cup, add the olive oil, vinegar, dijon, salt, pepper, diced shallot and minced garlic

Rinse the potatoes under water, then cut them into quarters.

Dump all the cut potatoes into a large pot and cover with enough water so that all the potatoes are immersed.

Once the potatoes are boiling, lower the heat to medium low so that they are just simmering and keep an eye on them for 10 minutes.

Transfer the potatoes to a large mixing bowl. Give the vinaigrette a whisk again before pouring it all over the potatoes.

Let the potatoes rest in the bowl for at least 1 hour before serving.
