Warm Herbed Potato Salad

Potato salad is a typical summer food – perfect for BBQs, potlucks and easy dinners.  But, really I’m not a mayonnaise potato salad person.  I am, however, a tangy potato salad person – and this warm herbed potato salad totally hits the spot for me.

Remember this recipe for Dijon macaroni and cheese?  I’ve teamed up with Maille mustard again to bring you this delicious and easy recipe.


3 large russet potatoes, scrubbed and dried
4 tbsp olive oil
4 large cloves garlic, peeled
2 tbsp Maille lemon and garlic mustard
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dried parsley + more for garnish
1/8 tsp dried ground thyme
salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut off the ends of each potato, slice in half lengthwise then slice three times so that you are left with eight evenly sized sections.
  3. Toss potatoes with 2 tbsp olive oil and place in an even layer on a baking sheet, and roast 30 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking.
  4. Place garlic cloves in a small tin foil pouch with 1 tsp olive oil and a pinch of salt, wrap tightly and place on the same baking sheet as the potatoes.
  5. While the potatoes are roasting, make the vinaigrette by combining the mustard with lemon juice, remaining olive oil, parsley and thyme.
  6. Once the potatoes are cooked through, remove the garlic pouch from the oven and set aside.
  7. Turn the broiler on high and finish cooking the potatoes, about 3-5 minutes or until the wedges are golden brown – watch this step closely so that you don’t burn the potatoes.
  8. Mash the garlic and combine with vinaigrette – be sure to add the olive oil from the pouch, it’s filled with flavor.
  9. In a large bowl, toss the hot roasted potato wedges with the vinaigrette using a rubber spatula and plate immediately, topped with extra parsley for color.
