French Potato Salad

A new spin to the classic Amercian version, this French Potato Salad is fresh and super easy to prepare! Oh la la! 


-1 1/2 lbs of small boiling potatoes, washed and quartered – 1 shallot or 1/2 red onion, minced – handful of Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped – 2 tbsp of extra-virgin olive oil – 2 tbsp of cider or red wine vinegar – 1 tsp of pimentón or paprika – 1/2 tsp of ground cumin – 1/2 tsp of ground coriander – kosher salt and black pepper, to taste

Put the quartered potatoes in a decent-sized pot and add cold water to cover, and around 2 teaspoons of salt. Place over high heat, cover, and bring to a boil. Uncover, and boil until the potatoes are tender, around 10-15 minutes.

Put the shallot and parsley in a medium bowl. Drain the potatoes, and, while they're still hot, add them to the bowl with the shallot and parsley, and give it all a toss. Add the remaining ingredients, toss well, and let sit at room temperature for at least 10 minutes, until the potatoes have absorbed all the oil and vinegar.

Serve warm or at room temperature
