Try Something New: Week Three

This post should have been up yesterday. Sorry, about this post being late.

 This week we tried German Potato Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette. I found this recipe on the back of the bag of red potatoes.

I did not grow up with a special, heirloom German Potato Salad recipe. If you have a German Potato Salad tradition I would suggest that you drop the, "German," in the title of the recipe and just call it, Potato Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette.

I really liked this potato salad. The dressing was delicious and would taste good on any salad, in my opinion.

 I went to to potato farm's website and found that the German Potato Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette that they have on their site is slightly different than the one they have on the back of the potato bag. I thought that was funny.

Here is the recipe that I followed:

 German Potato Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Salad Ingredients:

2 1/2 pounds Red Potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
3 oz. Red onion, finely chopped
3 oz. Green onion, chopped
5 oz. Cherry tomatoes, halved
1 1/4 TBS. Parsley, chopped

Honey Mustard Vinaigrette:

3 TBS. Lemon juice
1 1/4 TBS. Honey
1 1/4 Sherry wine vinegar
1 1/4 TBS. Whole grain mustard
3 TBS. Olive oil
Salt and pepper, as needed


In medium saucepan, cover potatoes with water; bring to a boil. Continue to cook for 20 minutes or until fork tender. Drain and cool.

In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, honey, vinegar, and mustard until well blended. While whisking, slowly drizzle in oil until completely incorporated. Season with salt and pepper.

In large bowl, mix potatoes, Honey-Musard Vinaigrette and red and green onions. Just before serving mix in tomatoes and parsley.
