I made this very summery Potato Salad with Mustard and Herbs for #Cookoutweek today. Our generous sponsors at The French Farm sent their Herbs Mustard to try. I thought what’s better to bring to a cookout than a creamy and delicious potato salad.

It is smooth, assertive and complex. It is a perfect compliment to vinaigrette dressings and is great to be used in dishes where dijon mustard is used. It was great in this potato salad — adds a lot of flavor to the dish. You can alternately use regular dijon mustard along with a good pinch of dried herbs.This potato salad with mustard and herbs is oh-so delicious. Personally I am not a big fan of potato salad because some of them are too bland but the addition of the flavorful mustard makes it very tasty. I couldn’t stop myself from ‘taste-testing’ it 🙂 It is a delicious side dish to serve at your next barbecue or a picnic or any other summer party you are planning for.
Potato Salad with Mustard and Herbs
- 3 Medium Potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 3~4 Scallions, chopped
- 1 tbsp Herbed Mustard*
- 3 tbsp mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp Fresh Parsley, chopped
- To taste Salt Pepper
- Place potatoes in a saucepan, along with water enough to cover the potatoes by 1". Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer the potatoes until fork tender, about 12~15 minutes.
- In the meantime, whisk the mustard, mayonnaise, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.
- Drain the potatoes well and add them to the bowl along with scallions and parsley. Mix well and serve at room temperature.
- If you only have regular mustard, then stir in either fresh or dried herbs like parsley, tarragon into dijon mustard and use that instead.
