Lisa’s Birthday Potato Salad

Lisa has a birthday this week (today, in fact!) and birthdays = food days at the office. So yesterday we celebrated with an uncharacteristically healthy buffet including hummus, plenty of fruit, and this potato salad. It’s easy, vegan, and great for picnics because it contains no mayo. Make it today, for Lisa!

Lisa’s Birthday Potato Salad

3 lbs. fingerling or new potatoes, cubed

1 Tbs. kosher or sea salt

½ red pepper, diced

½ red onion, diced

3 celery sticks, diced

1 small bunch fresh tarragon, chopped

2/3 c. mustard vinaigrette

Salt and pepper to taste

Mustard vinaigrette

2 Tbs. vinegar

½ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. freshly ground pepper

½ c. olive oil

2 Tbs. coarse ground mustard

Place potatoes and salt in a large pot and add enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until the potatoes are just fork tender, 12-15 minutes. (Don’t overcook them, or your potato salad will be mushy, and no one wants that.) While potatoes are cooking, whisk up your vinaigrette.

Drain potatoes and toss with vegetables, tarragon, vinaigrette, salt, and pepper. Sing Happy Birthday and enjoy warm (my preference) or chilled!
