Fresh green herbs and a vinaigrette dressing are the hallmarks of a French potato salad, making the dish pleasing not only to the eye but also to the palate. Small red potatoes are the traditional choice, and they should be tender but not mushy, with the flavor of the vinaigrette fully permeating the mild potatoes. To eliminate torn skins and broken slices, a common side effect of boiling skin-on red potatoes, feel free to slice the spuds before boiling. Try out this French Potato Salad with Dijon and Fines Herbes by America’s Test Kitchen!
