    Kimke's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from the Barefoot Contessa cookbook. It is WONDERFUL! The fresh herbs are essential--don't even try to make it with dried. It is also important to use a good flavored olive oil. Whenever we make this, it gets rave reviews. My husband could eat it daily for a week. Easy to double or triple for a crowd! Something different from your typical mayo based potato salad!

      Have been making this Ina recipe for years - including at a dinner party with Tuna Nicoise - and every time people want the recipe.

      We love this salad, it is a nice change from the regular mayo potato salads. I used a white wine vinegar and left out the dill. Excellent for a summer picnic.

      Very good. I also saw Ina Garten making it on TV. I substituted balsamic vinegar with the juice of 1 lemon and I also used dijon mustard seeds instead of ready to eat mustard. Came out delicious,wedid not have leftovers . The only downside is that it doesn't look very appealing to the guests,since potatoes don't hold their shape when mixing. I will still be making it for our summertime famly meals. Thank you.
