Warm Mustard and Herb Idaho® Fingerling Potato Salad


For the potatoes:
  • 1.5 pounds Idaho® Fingerling Potatoes, scrubbed clean
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
For the Mustard and Herb Vinaigrette:
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons shallots, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons grainy Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper
  • ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¼ cups red wine vinegar
  • 1 ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil


For the potatoes:
  1. Heat the oven to 425° F.
  2. Slice the fingerling potatoes into ½ inch coins. Place the sliced potatoes onto a baking sheet and toss with the oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Make sure all the potatoes are evenly coated.
  3. Place the baking dish into the oven and roast for 15 minutes. Remove the baking sheet and give the potatoes a quick toss to make sure they are cooking evenly. Place the baking sheet back into the oven and continue to roast for about 15 minutes more until the potatoes are golden brown. They should be fork tender all the way through. If they are not, roast them for 5-7 minutes longer.
  4. Remove the roasted potatoes from the oven and transfer them into a large bowl. Add ⅓ cup of the mustard herb vinaigrette and toss to combine. Adjust salt and pepper as needed and serve warm.
For the Mustard and Herb Vinaigrette:
  1. Combine everything in a medium bowl and whisk together until evenly combined and the oil and vinegar has emulsified.
  2. This makes enough for 1½ cups of vinaigrette, and any excess can be stored in an air tight container in a refrigerator for up to 1 week.
