I’m not a big fan of mayonnaise-based potato salads. I prefer a vinaigrette dressing which seems lighter and fresher somehow. The lemon, Dijon, garlic and fresh herbs add a wonderful flavour boost, making this potato salad one of my favourites. It can be made ahead and is quick and easy… so 3 bonus points. Cut the time and effort even further in a pinch with the shortcut below.
I generally use baby red potatoes (new potatoes). If the baby potatoes are on the larger side, cut them in quarters instead of halves. If you can’t find baby potatoes, use any other boiling potato such as yukon gold, fingerlings or russets. Just cut them into small bite size chunks.
This herb-lemon potato salad goes really well with any vegetarian, meat or fish main dish. Perfect for BBQs, potlucks and picnics. Easily transported. All in all, just a simple, yummy side dish.
In a pinch, replace the vinaigrette dressing in the recipe with your favourite store-bought vinaigrette dressing such as zesty Italian.
