French Potao Salad

This is another really yummy potato salad!  I have come to the conclusion that I really prefer potato salad without mayo in it.  I am not a big fan to begin with, and it adds so many extra calories.  This one has a vinegar dressing that is delicious!


1 pound small white boiling potatoes

1/4 cup of good dry white wine

1/4 cup chicken stock

4 tablespoons Champagne vinegar (I have used Apple Cider Vinegar when I didn't have champagne on hand)

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons kosher salt

3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup good olive oil

1/4 cup minced scallions (white and green parts)
2 tablespoons greek seasoning

2 tablespoons minced fresh dill

2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley

2 tablespoons julienned fresh basil leaves

  • Drop the white potatoes into a large pot of boiling salted water and cook for 20 to 30 minutes, until they are just cooked through. Drain in a colander and place a towel over the potatoes to allow them to steam for 10 more minutes. As soon as you can handle them, cut in 1/2 (quarters if the potatoes are larger) and place in a medium bowl. Toss gently with the wine and chicken stock. Allow the liquids to soak into the warm potatoes before proceeding.
  • Combine the vinegar, mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and slowly whisk in the olive oil to make an emulsion. Add the vinaigrette to the potatoes. Add the scallions, dill, parsley, basil, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and toss. Serve warm or at room temperature.
