I've been making an older Ina Garten potato salad recipe with Dijon dressing for years. I've adapted it over the years and added and subtracted. Ina uses champagne vinegar but I've also used red wine vinegar and it's delicious. This year, thank you Merrill, I'll throw in some arugula!!

This looks delicious. When I make potatoes for salad Nicoise I toss the hot potatoes in a splash of white vermouth before dressing them with a mustardy, herby vinaigrette: similar idea as the rice wine vinegar here.

This was fantastic. I will be making it all summer long. I threw in a couple of hard boiled eggs - yum.

I've made potato salad with a dijon dressing for years, using a pretty old Bobby Flay recipes. I like to grill the potatoes first and then pour the dressing on while they are still warm.

Beautiful!! Just made this and it was fantastic with grilled meats. It reminds me of an austrian-style potato salad that a local place (Herwig's) serves, except instead of arugula they go heavy on dill and there's a heavy helping of garlic powder and pork fat. This was much lighter; I like both!!
So glad you liked it! My husband loves German/Austrian potato salad, so he's a big fan of this as well.
