      Outstanding potato salad! I used fresh herbs out of my garden, and added about two tablespoons more olive oil to the vinaigrette, mainly because I had a few more potatoes than called for. The dijon-basil mayo adds a REALLY nice finish to the salad, especially with a chiffonade of fresh basil rather than dried. I plan on tossing in some steamed green beans when my garden produces, and I think a little bacon or crisped prosciutto would add a really nice bit of saltiness and crunch. Overall, a highly recommended recipe, and be sure to use the mayonnaise topping. It places this salad head and shoulders above most other French potato salads.
