Red Potatoes with Herb Vinaigrette
(serves 2-4 people)
5-8 small red potatoes
2 Tablespoons chicken broth
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
2 Tablespoons fresh tarragon, chopped
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Quarter potatoes and cook in a pot of boiling water until done. Do not overcook! Drain potatoes and set aside.
While potatoes are cooking, in a small bowl whisk the chicken broth, lemon juice, garlic, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil to make an emulsion.
Place potatoes in a bowl and pour vinaigrette over the top. Stir to coat. Toss in the onion, tarragon and parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and refrigerate for awhile to let potatoes soak up some yummy flavors.
note: I made this tonight for dinner tomorrow, and I think I prefer this dish warm. You can serve it either warmed or chilled.
