Our favorite way to use new potatoes! You can use any fresh veggies or herbs. Some of our favorites to chop up are cherry tomatoes, green beans, massaged kale, chives, parsley, and dill.
1 pound potatoes
1 cup mustard vinaigrette
Chopped veggies of your choice (massaged kale, scallions, green beans, cherry tomatoes)
Minced herbs of your choice (parsley, dill, chives,)
freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp Dijon
chopped garlic or shallots
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (or any type of vinegar)
1 cup oil (olive, sunflower, or other of your choice)
Simmer or steam your potatoes whole in salted water about 10 minutes until they are tender.
While cooking, make your vinaigrette
When tender, cool the potatoes quickly in cold water to stop them from cooking.
Dice and toss with the vinaigrette and chopped veggies and herbs.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Simmer kale in salted water until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain, reserving the cooking water, and chop the leaves. In a large skillet, sauté the onion in the oil with the garlic, pepper flakes, and rosemary for about 3 minutes. Add the wine and cook until it’s reduced to a syrupy sauce. Add the beans, and enough cooking water to keep the mixture loose. Heat through, taste for salt and season with pepper, and serve with a dusting of Parmesan.
