I’m half French and therefore, half potato.

I can eat potatoes all day long and never get bored of them. I’ll make them for breakfast, lunch and dinner and sometimes treat myself to a small bag of chips in the afternoon.

I’ll admit that my favorite preparation is the classic Quebec poutine – there’s nothing better than freshly cut, double fried French fries topped with brown gravy and melted cheese. Seriously, I can’t even think about it without starting to drool.

French fries, gravy and cheese?

Yep – so good, but not everyday!

Therefore these days, when I crave potatoes – I tend to bake, pan fry or boil them.

This red potato salad is boiled and has tons of yummy ingredients like green peas, sun dried tomatoes, fresh basil and scallions.

This Red Potato salad is so easy to make!

  1. Fill a pot with water, then add your red potatoes and bring to a boil. Cook them for about 7 minutes or so, until potatoes are tender but not mushy.
  2. Drain and transfer to a bowl. Very lightly mash them with a potato masher – only mash about half of the potatoes. This will help keep a rustic texture for your potato salad.
  3. Next, add your green peas, basil, sun dried tomatoes and scallions and lightly toss.
  4. Whisk all the ingredients for the dressing into a bowl until the oil has emulsified. Pour the dresing over the potatoes and toss well until they are evenly coated.
  5. Season with salt and pepper if needed and serve.

The zingy combination of grain mustard and white wine vinegar brings the dish together by enhancing the sweetness of the green peas and sun dried tomatoes. Not only is it really yummy, it’s also quite filling.

Serve this red potato salad with a soup or sandwich and you’ll be satisfied until dinnertime!
