Red White & Blue Potato Salad

Perfect for Memorial Day, the 4th of July or any celebration, this patriotic potato salad is dressed with a zippy mustard vinaigrette, not mayo so feel free to let it sit out at your gathering.



3 1/2 pounds assorted baby potatoes (including white, red and blue or purple)

2 teaspoons salt

1 cup thinly sliced celery

1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

3 Tablespoons chopped fresh dill


1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons honey

1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)

Freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Salad: Put potatoes, water to cover and salt in a large pot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender when pierced with a small knife or skewer, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool, then cut in half or quarter them and put into a large bowl.
  2. Add celery, onion, parsley and dill and gently toss.
  3. Dressing: Whisk olive oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Pour over salad and gently toss to coat. Let stand at least 30 minutes for flavors to blend.


This can be made a day ahead. It’s best served at room temperature though so remove it from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving. Substitute fresh tarragon for the dill if desired.
