Dijon Potato Salad

Lynn demonstrates how to make a super simple Dijon Potato Salad, perfect for a picnic or cook out.  Also, a demonstration of some herb scissors that come in very handy for chopping herbs, lettuce and many more things.  From Martha Stewart.


  • 1-1/2 pounds red new potatoes, scrubbed and halved
  • (quartered if large)
  • 1 Tablespoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley

Place a steamer basket in a saucepan filled with 1 inch water.  Bring to a gentle boil.  Add potatoes.  Cover, and cook just until tender, 15-20 minutes, tossing occasionally.

In a serving bowl, combine vinegar and Dijon; season with salt and pepper.  Add hot cooked potatoes; toss.  Let cool, tossing occasionally.

Add oil and parsley to cooled potato mixture.  Season with salt and pepper and toss.
