Potato salad with fines herbes+

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 pounds "new" red skinned potatoes
Salt
¼ cup Finely chopped shallots
1 Garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons Fresh chives
3 tablespoons Parsley, finely chopped
1 tablespoon Tarragon, chopped (if fresh) or 1 ts. dried
¼ cup Dry white wine
1 teaspoon Red wine or herb vinegar
3 tablespoons Walnut oil or alt. might be peanut, vegetable or corn
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

For a real switch from what Grandma used to make (which was good in its own right), try this alternative potato salad.

1. Put the potaotes in a kettle and add cold water to cover and salt to taste. bring to the boil and cook until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove from the heat and drain. 2. As soon as the potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel them. Cut them into ¼" thick slices and put them in a mixing bowl.

3. Add the shallots, garlic, chives, parsley, tarragon, wine vinegar, oil, salt and pepper to taste. Toss well. Garnish with heart of Romaine lettuce or other greens.

NOTE: Walnut oil is available in specialty shops that deal in fine imported foods
