Tailgating Potato Salad

Use any sort of waxy potato you like, I call for Yukon, but fingerling or red bliss will work well. Steer clear of starchy potatoes, like russet, that won’t hold up in a salad. You’ll love how the potatoes soak up the salt and vinegar, meaning each and every bite is full of flavor. Tossed with sundried tomatoes, celery for crunch and dill for freshness, this is one mean side next to a juicy, char-grilled burger.

Course Salad
Servings 4

Ingredients
 

  • 2 pounds yukon gold potatoes, or other waxy potatoes
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1-2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons grainy mustard
  • ¼-⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup oil-packed sun dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 large celery stalks, diced
  • 4 scallions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped

Instructions
 

  • Wash the potatoes and scrub if necessary. Put them in a large pot and cover with water by 2 inches. Boil whole, with skin on, until they can easily be pierced with a sharp knife, about 20-30 minutes depending on their size.
  • Drain the potatoes, and while still hot, cut them into bite sized pieces and place in a heatproof bowl. Pour the vinegar over the potatoes and add 1 teaspoon of salt and toss to coat. Let cool slightly while you prepare the other ingredients.
  • Add the mustard, olive oil, celery, and chopped sun dried tomatoes to the potatoes. At this point you can cover and refrigerate the salad up to a day ahead.
  • Before serving, toss in the dill and chopped scallions. Taste for seasoning. Potatoes can absorb a lot of seasoning, so you may need up to another teaspoon of salt, a few more splashes of vinegar, or more oil if it seems too dry.

Notes

  • * Make sure to use waxy potatoes. Russet or baking potatoes will not work in potato salads. Other varieties that do work here are fingerling, red or yellow bliss potatoes.
  • As long as the potatoes are completely cooled, you can add the herbs in up to a day before serving. They will darken slightly but still have great flavor.
  • I prefer to keep the skin on for added nutrients, but if you prefer you can peel the potatoes.
