  • Place potatoes into a large heavy-bottomed pot. Cover with cold water and place over medium heat. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Immediately reduce heat and remove lid. Gently simmer until potatoes are fork tender. Drain and place into an ice bath to cool.
  • Remove skin by rubbing with a tea towel.
  • Slice potatoes into rounds and place into a zip top bag.
  • Add the vinegar and toss to coat all of the potatoes. Place the bag into the refrigerator overnight.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, parsley, tarragon, garlic, cornichons, onions, and celery.
  • Once evenly combined, add the potatoes and season with salt and pepper.
  • Let the salad chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.
